A Modified Regula Falsi Method for Solving Root of Nonlinear Equations

Apichat Neamvonk


A Modified Regula Falsi method based on classic Regula Falsi method or False Position method for solving nonlinear equations is proposed in this paper. The method is verified on a number of test examples and numerical results obtained shows that the proposed method is very effective with respect to the classic Regula Falsi method and the other methods.
