## Newton's Method

Preliminaries ‘steepest descent algorithm’ Linear Algebra Calculus 1,2 Newton’s Method1 Taylor series gives us the conditions for minimum points based on both first-order items and the second-order item. And first-order item approximation of a performance index function produced a powerful algorithm for locating the minimum points which we call ‘steepest descent algorithm’. Now we want to have an insight into the second-order approximation of a function to find out whether there is an algorithm that can also work as a guide to the minimum points....
