# Iterative Solution of Equations; Convergence of Sequences

Chapter

## Abstract

In this chapter, we are concerned with the problem of solving an equation of the form
. The basic principle of our methods is to generate a

$$f(x) = 0$$

(2.1)

**sequence**of estimates of the required solution which we hope**converges**to this solution. It will therefore be necessary to study exactly what is meant by these terms and this is done later in this chapter. A much fuller treatment of the convergence of sequences has been given by Hawkins (1988).## Preview
