Tell me please how can I numerically find the point of fracture, such as in this graph for example:

Attachment 20310

I would like to know what methods exist for solving this problem (also for the multidimensional case), and references to them.

Do you know the graph equation?

If all you are given is the graph, the all you can do is estimate the value from the graph. It looks to me like it is about (98.75, -.98). If you have the graph in a graphing calculator, you may be able to "zoom" in on the point to get more accuracy.

Then how are you "inputting" the graph to the computer? That is, what information is the computer getting about the graph?
