Is there a general expression to find the roots of the following polynomial?
$z^n + n z^{n  1} + n(n  1)z^{n  2} + n(n  1)(n  2)z^{n  3} + \cdots + n! = 0$?
The structure of the polynomial seems to suggest there can be something that can be done to evaluate the roots explicitly but I can't see it. Any help? Thanks.

It is not knowledge, but the act of learning, not possession but the act of getting there, which grants the greatest enjoyment.

Re: Roots of a Polynomial
Okay, the above equation reduces to the truncated exponential which can alternately written as the Incomplete Gamma function. And the following post says there is no known simple expression.
