Just adding to my last post. I wrote an article titled "Numeric Computation in
Java" (5 page article) and in the first page (halfway down) you will find the
"BISECTION" algorithm described in there. It is not coded in Java but it is
described in pseudocode form which means you can easily write a version of
the BISECTION algorithm in C programming language. The article has minimal
Java coding but it addresses issues in numerical computing.
