## Solution Finder

Here is a tool to find the solutions of an equation f(x) = 0.
Enter the function in the window and click plot to graph the
function. You may look for solutions by clicking on the graph. This
begins Newton's method with the x coordinate of the click serving as
the initial value.
If the tolerance is left empty, it defaults to 1e-10.
The syntax for the input is essentially
copied from Maple.
The following examples are illustrative:

tan(x-x*cos(Pi*x))

sqrt(1-x^2)

e^{x*atan(x)}

floor(10*sin(x))/10

There are a few more options as well: you may zoom in on a region by
holding the Control key and clicking on the graph. Conversely, you
may zoom out by holding the Shift key and clicking. Where you click
becomes the new center of the graph. You may translate the graph by
holding down the Alt key and dragging the mouse around the
graphing area.

If something goes wrong, please
email me with a description
of what you did and what happened.
