findZero :: (ForwardDouble -> ForwardDouble) -> Double -> [Double] Source

The `findZero`

function finds a zero of a scalar function using
Newton's method; its output is a stream of increasingly accurate
results. (Modulo the usual caveats.) If the stream becomes constant
("it converges"), no further elements are returned.

Examples:

`>>>`

[1.0,2.5,2.05,2.000609756097561,2.0000000929222947,2.000000000000002,2.0]`take 10 $ findZero (\x->x^2-4) 1`

inverse :: (ForwardDouble -> ForwardDouble) -> Double -> Double -> [Double] Source

The `inverse`

function inverts a scalar function using
Newton's method; its output is a stream of increasingly accurate
results. (Modulo the usual caveats.) If the stream becomes
constant ("it converges"), no further elements are returned.

Example:

`>>>`

10.0`last $ take 10 $ inverse sqrt 1 (sqrt 10)`

fixedPoint :: (ForwardDouble -> ForwardDouble) -> Double -> [Double] Source

The `fixedPoint`

function find a fixedpoint of a scalar
function using Newton's method; its output is a stream of
increasingly accurate results. (Modulo the usual caveats.)

If the stream becomes constant ("it converges"), no further elements are returned.

`>>>`

0.7390851332151607`last $ take 10 $ fixedPoint cos 1`

extremum :: (On (Forward ForwardDouble) -> On (Forward ForwardDouble)) -> Double -> [Double] Source

The `extremum`

function finds an extremum of a scalar
function using Newton's method; produces a stream of increasingly
accurate results. (Modulo the usual caveats.) If the stream
becomes constant ("it converges"), no further elements are returned.

`>>>`

0.0`last $ take 10 $ extremum cos 1`
