YOU GOT A CHEEK, INDEED. YOUR UNETHICAL ATTITUDE ONLY MATCH THAT FROM OTHERS IN THE PAST IN THIS NEWGROUP. EXACTLY THE SAME UNETHICAL ATTITUDE.
Now, I am free to respond to BOTH OF you as you deserve before the sci.math audience because it has been proven that you and your friend Grover Hughes were making just FALSE STATEMENTS.

All the two assertions from Grover Hughes and his friend <sttscitr...@tesco.net> has been proven to be absolutely FALSE and UNETHICAL STATEMENTS. Their allegued Hurtwitz 's method (which in fact his originator was Achimedes or Wallis if you prefer) and Eshbach's method are not by far the same that the ones shown in my pages.
Notwithstanding, forget it, I do not care of such unethical attitude as well as i did not care for the shameful attitude from others in the past, the main point that I really care is the following:
I face and mantain my assertions: "THE EXTREMELY SIMPLE HIGHORDER METHODS SHOWN IN MY WEBPAGES BASED ON THE RATIONAL MEAN DO NOT APPEAR IN NEITHER ANY CHINESE, NOR ARAB, NOR INDIAN, NOR WESTERN BOOK, since ancient Babylonian times UP TO NOW!!! AND YOU WILL REALIZE THAT NO MATHEMATICIAN nor any mathhistorian will be able to deny such a crude fact. And this is a real shame mainly for all of us who have read some about the very long history of root solving.
What do think it would had happened if, for instance, Plat?n, Nichomacus, Wallis, etc. would had found such highorder arithmetical methods in such a trivialarithmetical way? Consider that all those mathematicians from past times (including Newton, Halley, etc.) certainly had the elementary tools to do that, however, from the evidence at hand THEY DIDN'T, and this is something really striking for anyone who have ever read a book on the history of mathematics.
If these methods based on the RATIONAL MEAN would had been discovered in past times then it is for sure that your mathteachers would had taught them to you at school. that's simple.
That is what really matters here, because this leads to think how many other thing are we missing. I am sure there another very different mathematics from that we have inherited and all these new simple methods are a clear evidence of that. There is certainly a missing mathematics and young minds certainly have the most simple tools to find it. we have to break the chains from past times.

Yes, in this newsgroup you and some others guys in the past tried to do exactly the same unethical acts than you and your friend Grover Hughes have tried this time. You got a cheek, indeed. You and all your friends should cogitate on your unethical attitude.
In past times, You insisted to say that the methods shown in my webpages do not yield best approximations and I told you and again I tell you this time that such methods certainly produce best approximations. The fact that some of those methods based on the Rational Mean could not produce ALL the best approximations is another problem which is the same problem with Newton's, Halley's, etc. when computing some particular roots.
I challenge you to show a posting from mine saying exactly what you are attributing to me, that is: "I can solve the cube version of Pell equation" That is another FALSE STATEMENT FROM YOURS, as FALSE as all the other statements that you and your friend Grover Hughes pretended to state in order to prevent people from reading my book and webpages. But you have failed again in the same way that in past times you and others did.
You, your friend Grover Hughes and some others from past times have had the same unethical attitude, many of you use to form kind of packs and make all kind of FALSE statements causing confusion and preventing people from reading one's work. That's an unethical attitude.
But, you know? I don't care and I have never cared of such packs and unethical attitude, because the methods shown in my webpages easily demolish all such unethical attempts, and such trivial highorder methods will remain there even after I have died out.
What I have always said is that my methods embrace Newton's, Bernoulli's, Halley's, Househloder's and many other NEW iterating functions for solving roots. My method is not just one algorithm but a new general and very simple concept involving so many highorder methods. The point these methods are based on the most simple arithmetic and that is really striking mainly when considering the very long story on rootsolving.
The methods shown in my pages : http://mipagina.cantv.net/arithmetic/rmdef.htm DO CERTAINLY YIELD BEST APPROXIMATIONS, of course they CERTAINLY DO, and I AM SURE that the NEW ARITHMONIC MEAN is the best tool to work the cube version of PELL'S EQUATION, and that is all what I have ever said. IF YOU LIKE TO ENJOY BEST APPROXIMATIONS, THEN LOOK AT THE ARITHMONIC MEAN PROCESSES SHOWN IN MY WEBPAGES. That hurt yours and some others feelings (mainly mathhistorians) but that's not my fault, ask mathematicians from past times why they didn't developed such TRIVIAL HIGHORDER ARITHMETICAL NONTRIAL&NONERROR ALGORITHMS.
I have no intentions of sending these NEW methods to any peerreview journal, I don't need to give detailed explanations on why, I think my reasons are very fairly clear. I think this is matter of ETHICS, MORAL AND UNBIASING MATHEMATICS.
If a mathhistorian take a look through all those new simple arithmetical methods based on the rational mean the such mathematician must have the MORAL OBLIGATION to make comments and include some analysis on them in his books, papers, etc. THAT JUST A MATTER OF MORAL AND ETHICS, MAINLY WHEN CONSIDERING THE VERY LONG STORY ON ROOTSOLVING.
