A Ridiculously Simple and Explicit
Implicit Function Theorem
I show that the general implicit-function problem
(or parametrized fixed-point problem)
in one complex variable has an explicit series solution
given by a trivial generalization of the Lagrange inversion formula.
I give versions of this formula for both
analytic functions and formal power series.
