How do you use Newtons method to solve for a functions optimum? I know that for finding the root you use:

For example lets say the function is: f(x) =Quote:

X1 = X0 - f(X0)/f'(X0)

X2 = X1 - f(X1)/f'(X1)

X3 = X2 - f(X2)/f'(X2)

...etc

4x^3-2x^2-5

What do you do differently to solve for optimum? My guess it has something to do with second derivative, but I'm not really sure. Any help would be appreciated

Thanks,
