A recently proposed approach to the solution of non-linear equations gives the same computing formulas as the generalized secant method. The effect of rounding-off errors is shown to be less than might be feared. References are given to the quasi-Newton forn of the method.
Generalized secant method, nonlinear equations, quasi-Newton method.
