Smale's analysis of Newton's iteration function induce a lower bound on the gap between two distinct zeros of a given complex-valued analytic function f (z). In this paper we make use of a fundamental family of iteration functions Bm(z), m ≥ 2, to derive an infinite family of lower bounds on the above gap. However, even for m = 2, where B 2 (z) coincides(More)
Kalantari This book offers fascinating and modern perspectives into the theory and practice of the historical subject of polynomial root-finding, rejuvenating the field via polynomiography, a creative and novel computer visualization that renders spectacular images of a polynomial equation. Polynomiography will not only pave the way for new applications of(More)
Let p(x) be a polynomial of degree n 2 with coecients in a subeld K of the complex numbers. For each natural number m 2, let L m (x) be the m 2 m lower triangular matrix whose diagonal entries are p(x) and for each j = 1; : : : ; m 0 1, its j-th subdiagonal entries are p (j) (x)=j!. For i = 1; 2, let L (i) m (x) be the matrix obtained from L m (x) by(More)
The general form of Taylor's theorem gives the formula, f = P n + R n , where P n is the New-ton's interpolating polynomial, computed with respect to a connuent vector of nodes, and R n is the remainder. When f 0 6 = 0, for each m = 2; : : :; n + 1, we describe a \determinantal interpolation formula", f = P m;n +R m;n , where P m;n is a rational function in(More)
