Has anyone ever "tried it before"?

Why do I need to have tried something that is not
possible in general, or if possible, is trivial to do?

Depending upon the shape of the function T(a,b),
there may be multiple solutions, so this will not
be possible. Even if it is possible because of a
strictly monotonic response, then there may be
only a limited set of solutions for certain values of
T. But for those values of T such the a solution
exists, it will be trivial to compute. Simply fix
the value of b, and interpolate. WTP?
