Nontrivial
A
solution or example that is not trivial.
Often, solutions or examples involving the number zero are considered
trivial. Nonzero solutions or examples are considered nontrivial.
For example, the
equation x + 5y =
0 has the trivial solution (0, 0). Nontrivial solutions include
(5, –1)
and (–2, 0.4).
