    hi,

    can anybody solve the following equation for variable s with Mathematica?

    ((-(-1 + b))*R*beta)/(a - (-1 + b)*R*s)^sigma - (-s + w -
    w*tau)^(-sigma)==0

    Solve doesn't work. I get this annoying error message.

    Solve::tdep: The equations appear to involve the variables to be solved for
    in an essentially non-algebraic way.

    I would like to get analytical solutions (numerical is not problem) to
    problems like this one.I know this one's easy done by hand but I have more
    cumbersome ones to deal with.
    Is there a package out there that can solve this analytically, or is this
    just impossible on computers?

    Thanks a lot.
