(35S) Complex Roots Of Any Equation Using Newton's Method
HP 35s program to compute the complex roots of any equation (as long as the functions used support complex numbers on the 35s) using Newton's Method utilizing the forward difference method to approximate the derivative. The 35s' built-in equation solver can compute Y given a complex value of X, but it cannot solve for complex values of X when Y is set to zero.

Program N - Newton's Method program proper
Program Y - Equation in terms of X whose roots are to be solved.

Upon typing XEQ N, enter an initial estimate of the root. Press R/S to update the root estimate until the value no longer changes indicating convergence. To find other root values, change the initial root estimate inputted.
