My question is..how could we use Newton method (or other iterative method ) to solve:(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

[tex] Nx^2 -y^2=1 [/tex] ??

The main problem i see is that the equation before could have some "non-integer" solutions note that (1) can be put in the form:

[tex] \sqrt(Nx^2 -1)=y [/tex] :grumpy:
