## What is the Secant method? Derivation of Secant method

Introduction to Secant Method What is the Secant method? Derivation of Secant method. The problem with the Newton Raphson’s method is that it requires the evaluation of the derivative for calculating each approximation of a root. Most of the times Read More …

## What is the Newton Raphson Method? Derive formula for it.

What is the Newton Raphson Method(NR)? What is the Newton Raphson Method?. This method falls in the category of open bracketing methods. It is also called the method of tangents as it determines the root of an equation by drawing Read More …

## what are the linearly dependent and independent vectors?

Linearly Independent Vectors: what are the linearly dependent and independent vectors? The vectors v1,v2,v3,…vn in a vector space V are said to be linearly dependent if there exist constants c1,c2,c3,….cn not all zero such that: c1v1+c2v2+c3v3+……+cnvn=0 ————————-(i) otherwise v1,v2,v3,…..vn are Read More …

What is the fixed-point-method? What is the fixed point method? One of the numerical methods for solving transcendental equations or algebraic equations is fixed-point (FP) method. This falls in the category of open bracketing methods. Open bracketing methods are those Read More …

## What is the method of false position? Drive formula of it.

Introduction to the method of false position What is the method of false position?. Despite the fact that bisection is an entirely legitimate strategy for deciding roots, its “brute force” approach is generally wasteful. False position is an option dependent Read More …

## How to find the basis of a vector space?

How to find the basis of a vector space? In order to find the basis of a vector space, we need to check two properties: The vectors should be linearly independent. These vectors should span in that vector space. If Read More …
