Using solve to find intersection points
It’s as simple as it looks — syms x f(x) = exp(-x^2) g(x) = sym(0.8) xi = solve(f == g) xi_vpa = vpa(xi) .

How can I simplify the folllowing equation
One approach — syms x Eqn = 2*x^2 - 2*x*(2*x^2 - 1) + 2*x*(2*x*(2*x^2 - 1) - 2*x^2 + 1) - 1 Eqn = simplify(Eqn, 500) .
