Roots of Polynomial with non-integer degree

Hi,
Ive a complex problem... where I have to find roots of the equation



where are constants

Ive tried taking log and using log sum rule but no result... Can someone help me with that... or at least guide me to some direction?
Is it even possible to find roots of such equations?
thanks

Re: Roots of Polynomial with non-integer degree

How about moving one term to the other side of the "=", then squaring both sides?

Now you have one more tool in your belt!

Don't forget to check for extraneous roots
