SummaryWe introduce a new three-stage process for calculating the zeros of a polynomial with complex coefficients. The algorithm is similar in spirit to the two stage algorithms studied by Traub in a… Expand

We introduce a new three-stage process for calculating the zeros of a polynomial with real coefficients. The algorithm finds either a linear or quadratic factor, working completely in real arithmet...

OP double precision vector of coefficients in order of decreasing powers of the variable D E G R E E integer degree of the polynomial ZEROR, double precision vectors of real and imaginary parts of the zeros found ZEROI by the algorithm FAIL logical parameter which is true only if the leading coefficient is zero or if RPOLY has found fewer than degree zeros; in the latter case the degree is reset to the number of zeros.Expand

An important problem in the field of force-reflecting systems and telerobotics is poor rendering of contact, particularly of contact with stiff surfaces. There are numerous possible sources of poor… Expand

The subroutine CPOLY is a Fortran program to find all the zeros of a complex polynomial by the three-stage complex algorithm described in Jenkins and Traub [4]. (An algorithm for real polynomials is… Expand

The Q'Nial interpreter combines ideas from APL and Lisp implementations to provide a rich programming environment that supports several paradigms of programming.Expand
