Sorry, I misunderstood your question. I though you where interested in
computing the nth root of a big_num. If you are interested in
computing the nth root of a float, I really don't understand why you
are using big nums.
An algorithm for computing the nth root of a float is easy :
let nth_root n x = exp (log(x)/.(float_of_int n));;
Hope this helps. If it doesn't answer to your question, please explain
your problem more precisely.
