Recall the assumption,  = g/gk. 5 Illustration of the Muller method. 29) This equation represents the Muller method.

This integration technique provides better accuracy than the Explicit Euler method but the Euler approach runs almost two times faster. Fourth-order Runge–Kutta (RK4) approach The concepts involved in the fourth-order Runge–Kutta approach (Lapidus and Seinfeld, 1971) for estimating xk+1 are outlined below. , xk + (t/2)k1]. Secondly, the first estimate of x is used to find the slope k2 at the midpoint. Subsequently, a corrected midpoint slope k3 is evaluated by using k2. Slope k4 is then found at the end of integration interval.

1 Illustration of the Bisection method. The Bisection method actually locates a root by repeatedly narrowing the distance between the two guesses. When an interval contains a root, this simple numerical method never fails. However, the main drawback of the Bisection technique is the slow convergence rate. Also, it is not easily extended to multivariable systems. 2 Secant Method Because of the slow convergence provided by the Bisection approach, the Secant method (Finlayson, 1980; Riggs, 1988; Burden and Faires, 1985) receives the attention as an alternative iterative technique.
