It's of the type $\displaystyle x^2 + (p + 1/p)x + 1 = 0$, which factorizes as $\displaystyle (x + p)(x + 1/p) = 0$. $\displaystyle x^2 + \left(\frac{a^2}{a^2 + b^2} + \frac{a^2 + b^2}{a^2}\right)x + 1 = \left(x + \frac{a^2}{a^2 + b^2}\right)\left(x + \frac{a^2 + b^2}{a^2}\right) = 0$ is easy to solve.
