But I don't know of any numerical roots finding method that works without the function being defined, continuous and differentiable on either side of each root. We may be able to get root with 1sided convergence. OP problem (root 1√2), plain Newton's method won't work. With shape like "╮", it will overshoot to bad region, inside 1±√2. But, if we do 3points quadratic fit for root, it may work. lua> S = require'solver' lua> f = fn'x: (x+1) * sqrt(x*x2*x1)' lua> x = S.secant2(f, 0.4145, 0.4144, 1e12, true, 0.4143) 0.4145 0.4144 0.4143 0.41421382517725713 0.4142135670509061 0.41421356238295287 0.41421356237309526 0.41421356237309503 lua> f(x) 0 Another way is what I called signed sqrt trick, as long as it does not change the roots. Bad region now not only is defined, but also with sign reversal. This allowed iterations to spiral to true roots, without using complex numbers. For OP example, this is silly, but the trick may be useful elsewhere. 10 DEF FNS(X)=SGN(X)*SQRT(ABS(X)) 20 DEF FNF(X)=(X+1)*FNS(X*X2*X1) 30 INPUT "A,B=";A,B 40 DISP FNROOT(A,B,FNF(FVAR)) @ GOTO 30 >run A,B=3,.5 1 A,B=.5,.5 .414213562375 A,B=.5,3 2.41421356238
