In MATLAB, I want to use the NewtonRaphson method with absolute tolerance 1e1, other tolerances zero, and an initial estimate x0 = 4 to find a zero of the function
f(x) = tan^{1} (x1)  0.5 And then repeat the process for a better estimate with absolute tolerance 10^{9}. So here is my code so far:
Also when I changed the value of the absolute tolerance to 10^9, there was no change in the output. Why is that? I'm new to Matlab, so any help is greatly appreciated.
