 May 4, 2004, 11:46 Re: Polynomial Root finding #4 agg Guest   Posts: n/a Thanks guys, Let me first explain why I need to solve a polynomial eqn. Reference JFM(2000), vol.415, pp.261-284 "A scale-dependent dynamic model for LES". I want to solve eqn. (3.14) which is a polynomial of degree 5. But I only need the largest, real, positive root. In the paper they solve this using a Newton-Raphson method. I wanted to know if there is a ready-made subroutine that will give me the largest real root. -Agg.
