# Matlab Newton's Method

Recall that Newton's Method is an iterative way of approximating a
zero of a function *f*. The idea is that, given a starting
guess *x _{0}*, we compute new estimates of the zero
of

*f*using the formula

x_{n+1} = x_{n} - f(x_{n}) / f'(x_{n})
n = 0, 1, ...

One uses this iteration until *|x _{n+1}-x_{n}|*
