## Fixed-Point Iteration

This applet demonstrates finding a the root of a function
*f*(*x*) by fixed-point iteration. For each function
*f*(*x*), we can derive one or more iteration functions
of the form *x* = *g*(*x*) by solving for *x*.
We plot plot *g*(*x*) against the line *x* = *y*.
Some of the functions *g*(*x*) will converge, and the rest will
diverge.

## To run the demo:

- Choose a convergent or a divergent function
*g*(*x*). - Drag the mouse along the
*x*axis.
