Re: NSolve output
Posted: Jan 16, 2013 1:38 AM

The following didn't work (I am using version 8):
soln1 = NSolve[{dpi1s1 == 0, dpi2s2 == 0, 0 < s1 < 1, 0 < s2 < 1}, {s1, s2}][[1]]

The following works well.
soln4 = Select[NSolve[{dpi1s1 == 0, dpi2s2 == 0}, {s1, s2}], And @@ Thread[0 < {s1, s2} < 1] /. # &][[1]]

Thanks a lot again.

Clear[s1, s2];

dpi1s1 = Rationalize[
0.3125 - 0.0645 s1^2 + 0.0083205 s1^3 + 0.125 s2^2 +
s1 (-0.26 + (-0.03225 + 0.0645 s2) s2), 0];

dpi2s2 = Rationalize[
0.3125 + s2 (-2.4375 + (-0.25 + 0.0645 s1) s1 +
(-0.375 + 0.5 s2) s2), 0];

The easiest way is to just add the constraints

soln1 = NSolve[
{dpi1s1 == 0, dpi2s2 == 0, 0 < s1 < 1, 0 < s2 < 1},
{s1, s2}][[1]]

{s1 -> 0.986758, s2 -> 0.117545}

soln2 = Solve[
{dpi1s1 == 0, dpi2s2 == 0, 0 < s1 < 1, 0 < s2 < 1},
{s1, s2}][[1]] // N

{s1 -> 0.986758, s2 -> 0.117545}

soln3 = Reduce[
{dpi1s1 == 0, dpi2s2 == 0, 0 < s1 < 1, 0 < s2 < 1},
{s1, s2},
Backsubstitution -> True] // N // ToRules

{s1 -> 0.986758, s2 -> 0.117545}

Alternatively,

soln4 = Select[NSolve[
{dpi1s1 == 0, dpi2s2 == 0}, {s1, s2}],
And @@ Thread[0 < {s1, s2} < 1] /. # &][[1]]

{s1 -> 0.986758, s2 -> 0.117545}

soln5 = Cases[NSolve[
{dpi1s1 == 0, dpi2s2 == 0}, {s1, s2}],
_?(And @@ Thread[0 < {s1, s2} < 1] /. # &)][[1]]

{s1 -> 0.986758, s2 -> 0.117545}

are in (0, 1) domain. I am using a laborious method as follow, but can I g=
