# Quadratic Equation Solver

P. Lutus -- Message Page --

## Background

For the second-order polynomial equation: The following solution exists: Solutions using numerical methods are somewhat unreliable for several reasons including limited precision, overflow and underflow, and some boundary conditions. If you have access to a symbolic solver (Mathematica, Maple, etc.), the results will be more useful, but this Java solver will provide numerical real and imaginary roots for most cases.
