I am working on a solution, where I'm currently stuck with an equation of the following form. arctan( k * x ) + x = c x is real and positive, and can even be above zero if this helps the solution. k and c are real I need to solve this equation with respect to x. So far I can't seem to solve it, and series expansion is not usefull because my x can be larger than 1. If a very nice expression can be formed using x > 0 and x < 1, then I might be able to fix this by scaling the expression. Any help would be appreciated. /Henrik Andresen

The constant 'k' has to be isolated and is in fact a placeholder for the expression 'tan( theta/2 + pi/4)', where I in the end has to find theta. /Henrik
