Hi Simon,

I used the free form input in that form: "inverse function of
f(x)=x^2", so I essentially used Wolfram alpha

My point or rather my question was however, why Mathematica returns a
solution where there should be none, as to my understanding f(x)=x^2
cannot be inverted. But then my understanding is quite limited, so
please bear with me if this is just a lapse of knowledge on my part
:-)

Regards
