Regula Falsi (False Position) Method Advantages

In numerical analysis, Regula-Falsi method is one of the bracketing method to find real root of non-linear equations.

Regula-Falsi method also known as False-Position method has following merits or benefits or pros:


  1. Convergence is guarenteed: this method is bracketing method and it is always convergent.
  2. Error can be controlled: increasing number of iteration always yields more accurate root.
  3. Does not require derivative: this method does not require derivative calculation.
