Talk - Finding Roots of Polynomials Jan 22, 2015 I was invited to give an undergraduate-level talk at the Seattle University Math Colloquia on the topic of numerical root finding using Smale’s alpha theory. Below are the slides I used for the talk. The demonstations were performed in the Python programming language using the iPython Notebook. You can download the demo notebook (.ipynb) as well as the notebook used to generate the images in the talk here (.ipynb).
