What is Meant by Newton’s Method?
In Maths, Newton’s method is also known as the Newton- Raphson Method. This is the quickest method to find a better approximation value for the roots of the real-valued function f(x) = 0. The idea behind Newton’s method is that the continuous and the differentiable functions are approximated by using the straight-line tangent to it. Newton’s method formula is given as:
X1 = x0 -(f(x0)/f’(x0))
X0 is the initial value
f(x0) is the function at the initial value x0
f’(x0) is the first derivative of the function at the initial value x0
The process can be continued many times until the better approximation value is obtained.
