Solves the nonlinear algebraic equation system f = 0 by Newton's method. This program is not dependent on BigDecimal
.
To call:
n = nlsolve(f,x) where n is the number of iterations required, x is the initial value vector f is an Object which is used to compute the values of the equations to be solved.
It must provide the following methods:
returns the values of all functions at x
returns 0.0
returns 1.0
returns 2.0
returns 10.0
returns the convergence criterion (epsilon value) used to determine whether two values are considered equal. If |a-b| < epsilon, the two values are considered equal.
On exit, x is the solution vector.
