    5 min Intro to nonlinear solvers

    • 2 Comments
    Nonlinear solvers are essentially solving a system of nonlinear equations. X^2 + x -1 =0 is a nonlinear equation. As we recall from Calculus 101, to solve these equations, one has to use some variants of Newton’s method because it has fast convergence...
