Please help:)
The iterative formula \(x_{i+1}=a_0+a_1x_1^2\) \((a_0, a_1\) positive ) is being used to solve the equation \(x=a_0+a_1x^2.\) What is the condition of convergence?

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0one sec, let me work on it

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0if limit exists, that means lim xn = L , then x_i+1 is roughly the same as x_i for large i

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so substitute L for xi and xi+1 L = a0 + a1 L ^2, it is a quadratic

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0use quadratic formula , a1 L^2  L + a0 = 0, where L = xi as i > oo,

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0L = [(1) +  sqrt ( 1  4*a1*a0)] / ( 2*a1)

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0this has real solutions only when the discriminant is at least positive

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so the condition for convergence is , when a1*a0 <= 1/4

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0also you have a typo in your question

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0so for instance, a0 = 1/2 and a1 = 1/3 converges for any x

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0ya it does. Thanxx a lottt.

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I take that back that it converges for all x,

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0your seed has to be close enough to the x intercept (zero) for the iteration to converge

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0you know what, i dont think i answered the question. i answered what it will converge to in the case that it does converge

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0I think i have a condition in my book.

perl

Best ResponseYou've already chosen the best response.0the derivative has to be less than 1 . so 2a1*x < 1 , so x < 1/ (2*a1)
