Roots of Cubic and Quartic polynomials.
For Partial fraction expansion, it is necessary to find the roots of
the denominator polynomial.
The applet below can be used to find the roots of cubic and quartic
The coefficients are set by scrollbars 2 to 13. The pink text shows
the value of the polynomial at the roots.
The image below shows the applet used to find the roots of:-
z4 + 3.25z3 + 4.5z2 + 6.3z + 5.63 = 0
There are 2 pairs of complex conjugate roots at -1.67424 ± j0.2470251 and 0.04924949 ± j1.401165.
z2 + 3.25z + 4.5 = 0 and z3 + 3.25z2 + 4.5z + 6.3 = 0 are also
