How to evaluate a function matrix at a point in Scientific Notebook

  1. Oct 7, 2013 #1
    Hi all,

    I need to evaluate a matrix of functions. I got the jacobian matrix, and I need to run Newton's Method for systems of nonlinear equations on it. I have the right functions/matrix, but I don't know how to PLUG IN values for x,y,and z in scientific notebook. I need to iterate 5 times starting with (1,1,1). Look at the attached picture and you'll see what I'm talking about. No way I can plug that in by hand 5 iterations. I don't need you to give me any answers, just to tell me how to PLUG IN numbers in Sci NB for matrices with variables in them.

    Thanks!
