Funny. If K0 is already the solution, then it should
return zeros for F, at least approximately.

F(2) = 1/( 0.6/(k(2)*44.44)+0.4/(k(4)*65.43))k(3);
F(3) = 1  k(1)k(5);
F(4) = exp(1.107*k(5)^2)k(2);
F(5) = exp(1.107*k(1)^2)k(4)
F =
1627.24724271845 0.519342857456024 5.55111512312578e17 0.0107719526745367 0.0225774221160711
So I wonder why, if you have checked the equations,
and they are correct, AND this is a solution, then why
is F not zero?
Just one of those little mysteries we are faced with.
