# Package dev.nm.analysis.root.univariate

• Interface Summary
Interface Description
Uniroot
A root-finding algorithm is a numerical algorithm for finding a value x such that f(x) = 0, for a given function f.
• Class Summary
Class Description
BisectionRoot
The bisection method repeatedly bisects an interval and then selects a subinterval in which a root must lie for further processing.
BrentRoot
Brent's root-finding algorithm combines super-linear convergence with reliability of bisection.
HalleyRoot
Halley's method is an iterative root finding method for a univariate function with a continuous second derivative, i.e., a C2 function.
NewtonRoot
The Newton-Raphson method is as follows: one starts with an initial guess which is reasonably close to the true root, then the function is approximated by its tangent line (which can be computed using the tools of calculus), and one computes the x-intercept of this tangent line (which is easily done with elementary algebra).
• Exception Summary
Exception Description
NoRootFoundException
This is the Exception thrown when it fails to find a root.
