A review of quadrature methods for the numerical determination of zeros of algebraic or transcendental functions is presented. Most of these methods are based on the classical theory of analytic functions, but, recently, relevant methods based on the elementary theory of real functions were also developed. On the other hand, purely numerical methods were also recently proposed. The common point of these methods is the use of numerical integration rules for the determination of the…
