Be sure Mr. unethical Grover Hughes that I will never get any ulcer from people like you and your friend.
YOU mr. Grover Hughes GOT A CHEEK, INDEED. YOUR UNETHICAL ATTITUDE ONLY MATCH THAT FROM OTHERS IN THE PAST IN THIS NEWSGROUP. EXACTLY THE SAME UNETHICAL ATTITUDE.

WHAT FOLLOWS IS WHAT THIS GUY Grover Hughes RESPONDED TO MY ORIGINAL MESSAGE:

ALSO FOLLOWS WHAT HIS UNIDENTIFIED FRIEND <sttscitr...@tesco.net> UNETHICALY AND NEGLIGENTLY wrote: On 24 jul, 06:44, "sttscitr...@tesco.net" <sttscitr...@tesco.net> wrote: > Your historical claim may well be true, but at > least one poster states he has a reference predating your > claim.

Both assertions from Grover Hughes and his unidentified friend <sttscitr...@tesco.net> has been proven to be absolutely FALSE and UNETHICAL STATEMENTS. Their alleged Hurtwitz 's method (which in fact his originator was Achimedes or Wallis if you prefer) and Eshbach's method are not, by any means, the same to 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 maintain 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 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 things could have been missed. 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.
All those ranting raving messages, unethical actions, and insults against me have no importance, at all.
What really matters is that : "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.
I even understand your feelings, probably you have read some books on numerical methods and the history of rootsolving, and now you realize that halley's, Householder's and many other new iterating functions could have been developed by means of the MOST SIMPLE ARITHMETIC since ancient times, but mathematician of past times didn't develope such trivial highorder methods.
That is bitter blow for you and some others, I am sorry for that but you have to swallow it.
