In this section we show how a computer algebra package like MAPLE
can be used to generate p-th order iterations that converge
to from the functions .
For a fixed initial value and a fixed p
we define the sequence by
Of course, as it stands, although it is clear that
converges to to p-th order, it is not very practical.
The idea is to write the sequence recursively. Therefore there are
two problems to solve:
Find initial values .
Get in terms of .
Table 1 contains some functions we defined in MAPLE and that we
used to find and prove initial values and iterations.
