Re: Newton FractalHi; In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof. #52 20121126 00:05:00
Re: Newton FractalYes, I saw that this morning when I found that page but forgot about it when writing to you now. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #53 20121126 00:08:34
Re: Newton FractalRoot finding is a math problem and LB is just not built for it. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Newton FractalYes, I understand; but when I saw your post earlier on about Newton's going haywire if the initial guess was out of its range, I recalled a similar issue with another problem years ago that I wrote on my Sharp PC1500A with its version of BASIC, where I used Newton's Method to solve it, and I was just letting you know my experience. My guess had to be so close to the answer that I had to enter what I thought was an unrealistically close initial approximation.

Re: Newton FractalNewton's works off of a tangent and sometimes can not get the root unless In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them.

Re: Newton FractalYes, those pictures are stunning! "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #57 20121126 00:54:59

Re: Newton FractalYes...so I'm told. "The good news about computers is that they do what you tell them to do. The bad news is that they do what you tell them to do."  Ted Nelson #59 20121126 01:27:20
Re: Newton FractalOkay, see you later and have a good night. In mathematics, you don't understand things. You just get used to them. I have the result, but I do not yet know how to get it. All physicists, and a good many quite respectable mathematicians are contemptuous about proof.
