The equation $f(x)=x^3+4x^2-10=0$ has a root in $[1,2]$ since $f(1)=-5$ and $f(2)=14$. It is easily seen from a sketch of the graph of $f$ ...

## Solutions of Equations of One Variable With The Bisection Method

In this chapter we consider one of the most basic problems of numerical approximation, the root finding problem. This process involves fin...

## Round-Off Error and Computer Arithmetic

The arithmetic performed by a calculator or computer is different from the arithmetic that we use in our algebra and calculus courses. From...

## Taylor polynomial and Maclaurin polynomial

[Taylor’s Theorem] Suppose $f\in C^{n}[a,b]$ and $f^{(n+1)}$ exists on $[a,b]$. Let $x_{0}$ be a number in $[a,b]$. For every $x$ in $[a,b...
