Newton's method for solving a system of nonlinear equations, see http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Newton's_method
Newton(X,F,X0) solves nonlinear system F(x)=0 by Newton's method, using the given initial approximation X0. The derivative (Jacobian) is evaluated symbolically. The iterations are performed numerically.
The included demo NewtonDemoRunMe.m shows how to run the Newton.m function. E.g., it creates a slide-show and a movie, illustrating the behavior of the iterates. |
