### The function defined by $f(x)=\sin (\pi x)$ has zeroes at every integer.

The function defined by $f(x)=\sin (\pi x)$ has zeroes at every integer. Show that when $-1<a<0$ and $2<b<3$, the bisection method converges to $0$, if $a+b<2$. How to approach this? ...

### How do I solve $y=x+B\sin(x+A)$ for $x$

I have a code that converts x into y using the formula: $y=x+B\sin(x+A)$ with $x, A$ and $B$ known values. $B$ is also very small so that $B\sin(x+A) < 0.035$. The problem is that in another ...

### Why does the “shooting” or “wag the dog” method give a bound state?

I am using numerical methods to solve Schrodingers equation. I have identified an interval for E (energy) in which one solution tends to infinity, but on the other side the other solution tends to ...
