Is this any clearer now?>Thank you so much, yes, much more clear now.But the answer is still the same I am afraid. Please re-read whatI wrote earlier.There is no solution to exp(sin(t))=0, in other words, there isno 't' which will make exp(sin(t)) zero.Did you try to plot exp(x) for x=-1..1 ? did you see exp(x)cross the x-axis anywhere? It does not. So there is no solution,it is never zero.--Nasser
