Getting to the Root of the Problem

Peter Vanden Bosch 

March 2000, Volume 93, Issue 3, Page 208

Abstract:
A root-approximation method using fixed points: it converges quickly for most functions, and it works even on discontinuous functions and functions of several variables. More important for the classroom, it can be used to illustrate a number of important concepts and is a natural lead-in to chaos theory and fractal geometry.
