The paper describes an iterative method for factoring a polynomial that bears the same relation to Bairstows method as the secant method in a single variable bears to Newtons method. Like the secant method, the generalized secant method requires only one function evaluation for each iteration, and like the secant method it converges to a simple factor with order 1 square root52.
