Re: newton raphson method

The Newton-Raphson method is a method for calculating roots of non-linear equations.

Exactly what non-linear equation are you trying to solve ?

Re: newton raphson method

f(x)=cos(x)+(x^2-1)^2 is the function

Re: newton raphson method

Fine, but what does f (x)=c and x (n)=(-1)^n have to do with it ? I'll have a look at it.

Re: newton raphson method

?? The f(x) that you give is never zero. Try again.

Re: newton raphson method

is the question wrong then

Re: newton raphson method

The question as stated in #1 didn't seem to make much sense, I would be guessing as to what was meant, and the function you give in #3 doesn't have any zeros to calculate.

Re: newton raphson method

is Newton Raphson similar to an epsilon perturbation method and maybe less accurate? you can program these into software
