Fixed Point Iteration Java Applet

To use this applet you must have a Java and JavaScript aware browser, such as Netscape 3.0

This applet constructs a sequence of points p(n) from an initial guess, using the rule p(n+1)=f(p(n)). (i.e. fixed point iteration) This sequence converges to the fixed point to f(x) if the derivative of f is less than 1. Use "Options, Show Java Console" to see the listing of the sequence you generate.

f(x) = Initial guess, p(0) =
