This app demonstrates the application of the iterative method to the solution of an equation f (x) = 0.
You are asked to enter the function f (x) and the initial value x0. Through a cursor k it is possible to vary the slope of the curve at the intersection with the line of fixed points y = x and then set the convergence of the method.
Tab 1.2 displays the iteration diagram, the cursor and a convergence diagram.
