Another oddity in the symboic processor, at least in 2001i. This is particularly odd, as officially (in the help) erf is not even defined for complex values. Also another case where the symbolic processor has switched to a numeric float evaluation even though there is nothing in the original expression that should trigger that.

One more ugly bug !
Either a bug or something we don't understand. Even if the result has an explanation, it deserves a message, otherwise the user can do wrong or is left confused. Very nice you persist. We had reported many more in the past, but none (to my recollection) were answered.
No, I don't really need the general inverse. I was specifically interested in that point, and the numeric solver finds it easily enough. I just thought the symbolic solver's opinion sufficiently weird to merit some attention.
