The bisection method is an algorithm for finding roots of a nonlinear equation $f(x) = 0$, where $f$ is continuous and $x$ is one-dimensional. Here are a few excellent online resources for the bisection method.

  • Bisection method, Wikipedia. Good explanation, provides pseudo-code, some great concrete examples, and error analysis.
  • Bisection Wolfram Alpha. Terse, gives error analysis.
  • Bisection method, This one has a nice animation.
