Abstract:

The principle of Newtons method for determining a zero of a function has been adopted to the problem of determining parameters a sub 1, a sub 2,..... , a sub n such that y ta sub 1, a sub 2,....., a sub n 0 for almost all values of t. The method has been applied to the solution of a particular equation. Methods for determining initial guesses are also presented.
