Numerical solution of random nonlinear equations. (English) Zbl 0572.65038
This paper deals with the numerical solution of random nonlinear algebraic and transcendental equations in one unknown. A random secant method is presented and its convergence is discussed. Its practical implementation to approximate the mean and the variance of real solutions of random nonlinear equations is discussed. This article is one of the kind which highlights the usefulness of the theory of random polynomials.
