For example: ```a(1,1) x(1)^2 + a(1,2) * x(2) + a(1,3) * x(3) = b(1) a(2,1) x(1) + a(2,2) * x(2)^2 + a(2,3) * x(3) = b(2) a(3,1) x(1) + a(3,2) * x(2) + a(3,3) * x(3)^3 = b(3) ``` Has anyone seen applications with the above type of equations (even with the powers of 2 replaced by other values)??? Thanks you for your help. I would like to know if there are ANY practical applications for the above type of system of equations. Otherwise, the Neo Simultaneous Linear Equations are part of pure math problems.

Re: Simple Math Question - Eddie W. Shore - 08-09-2013 No, but I will keep an eye out for these systems.
