## At which point the Newton-Raphson method fails?

Newton’s method will fail in cases where the derivative is zero. When the derivative is close to zero, the tangent line is nearly horizontal and hence may overshoot the desired root (numerical difficulties). Solution: Try another initial point.

**What are the merits of Newton’s method of iteration?**

Advantages of using Newton’s method to approximate a root rest primarily in its rate of convergence. When the method converges, it does so quadratically. Also, the method is very simple to apply and has great local convergence.

### Why do iterative methods work?

In it, a calculation is repeated multiple times and the answer from each iteration is used as the basis for the next calculation. The answer gets better after each iteration. (Ignoring, for simplicity, the issue of convergence.) Newton’s Method captures the essential mechanism of iteration.

**What are the advantages of bisection method?**

a) The bisection method is always convergent. Since the method brackets the root, the method is guaranteed to converge. b) As iterations are conducted, the interval gets halved. So one can guarantee the error in the solution of the equation.

## Which is the fastest convergence method?

Newton’s Method is a very good method When the condition is satisfied, Newton’s method converges, and it also converges faster than almost any other alternative iteration scheme based on other methods of coverting the original f(x) to a function with a fixed point.

**What do you mean by order of convergence?**

The order of convergence is one of the primary ways to estimate the actual rate of convergence, the speed at which the errors go to zero. Typically the order of convergence measures the asymptotic behavior of convergence, often up to constants.

### Which method is not iterative method?

9. Which of the following is not an iterative method? Explanation: Jacobi’s method, Gauss Seidal method and Relaxation method are the iterative methods and Gauss Jordan method is not as it does not involves repetition of a particular set of steps followed by some sequence which is known as iteration.

**Why do we use secant method?**

In numerical analysis, the secant method is a root-finding algorithm that uses a succession of roots of secant lines to better approximate a root of a function f. The secant method can be thought of as a finite-difference approximation of Newton’s method.

## What is order of convergence of an iterative method?

That efficiency is measured by order of convergence, which this note explains. Iterative Methods. Iterative methods for solving a non-linear equation, f(x) = 0, rewrite the equation as x = g(x), and then use the latter formulation in an iterative manner: xn+1 = g(xn).

**What is the advantage and disadvantage of Newton’s method?**

Advantages and Disadvantages: If the tangent is parallel or nearly parallel to the x-axis, then the method does not converge. Usually Newton method is expected to converge only near the solution. The advantage of the method is its order of convergence is quadratic.

### What are the drawbacks of bisection method?

DISADVANTAGES OF BISECTION METHOD: Biggest dis-advantage is the slow convergence rate. Typically bisection is used to get an initial estimate for such faster methods such as Newton-Raphson that requires an initial estimate. There is also the inability to detect multiple roots.

**What is the other name for factorization method?**

Explanation: Another name for factorization method is Doolittle’s Method as Doolittle’s method is basically an algorithm of Factorization method.

## Which iterative method converges fast?

Ishikawa iteration method
