20100241678 | METHOD OF FINDING SOLUTION OF EQUATION AND RECORDING MEDIUM STORING PROGRAM FOR IMPLEMENTING THE SAME - The present invention relates to a solution-finding method, which finds an approximate solution of an equation having difficulty in obtaining an actual solution and a complicated equation in numerical analysis. The method obtains an approximate solution of an equation having a solution in a predetermined interval. Initial values are calculated based on upper and lower limits of the interval. The initial values are applied to a solution-finding equation, including a sign function and the upper and lower limits, and the solution-finding equation is arranged so that a definite integral formula for the sign function is included in the equation. The definite integral formula in the solution-finding equation is calculated using numerical integration, and results of the definite integral formula are applied to the solution-finding equation, thus obtaining an approximate solution. This performance is iterated until the approximate solution satisfies an allowable error. | 09-23-2010 |
