Anyone got an example of where the Newton-Rasphson method of finding roots of an equation fails? I know in principle it's when there are lots of roots close together or when the starting value is v. close to an asymptote but I can't find an equation to illustrate this.
EDIT: Sorry, didn't read very far down!!! Thanks to the guys who posted on that thread
