Bisection Method Illustration
The bisection method is one of the simplest and most reliable of iterative methods for the solution of nonlinear equations. This method, also known as binary chopping or half-interval method, relies on the fact that if f(x) is real and continuous in the interval a < x < b, and f(a) and f(b) are of opposite signs, that is,
f(a)*f(b) < 0
then there is at least one real root in the interval between a and b.
