Determines a zero of a function in a given interval using the Ridders' method. You define the function with a formula.
Formula that defines the function.
Entering Valid Variables
Start value of the interval.
Default: 0
End value of the interval.
Default: 1
Error conditions that occur before this node runs.
The node responds to this input according to standard error behavior.
Standard Error Behavior
Many nodes provide an error in input and an error out output so that the node can respond to and communicate errors that occur while code is running. The value of error in specifies whether an error occurred before the node runs. Most nodes respond to values of error in in a standard, predictable way.
Default: No error
Conditions that terminate the process of finding zeros.
This node terminates the process of finding zeros if this node reaches the accuracy threshold or passes the maximum iterations threshold.
Maximum deviation of the calculated solution from the actual solution when determining the zeros.
Default: 1E-08
Maximum number of iterations that the node runs to determine the zeros.
Default: 200
Determined value of the independent variable where the function evaluates to zero.
This value is an approximation of the actual value of the variable where the function evaluates to zero.
Function value at zero. The value is expected to be nearly zero.
Conditions of the node when the node stops finding zeros.
Deviation of the calculated solution from the actual solution.
Number of iterations that the node runs to determine the zero.
Number of evaluations of the formula to determine the zeros.
Error information.
The node produces this output according to standard error behavior.

Given the function f(x) with f(a) * f(b) < 0, Ridders' method calculates c _{new} using the following equation:
where
The values start, c _{new}, and end are the base for the new iteration, depending on which of the following inequalities is true:
f(start) * f(c _{new}) < 0
f(c _{new}) * f(end) < 0
The algorithm stops if |a - b| < accuracy.
To determine the zero of x ^{2} + sin(x) - 1 in the interval (0, 1), enter the following values on the panel.
formula | x^2+sin(x)-1 |
start | 0 |
