Asymptotic Optimality of the Bisection Method

Sikorski, Krzysztof A.; Trojan, G. M.

The bisection method is shown to possess the asymptotically best rate of convergence for infinitely differentiable functions having zeros of arbitrary multiplicity. If the multiplicity of zeros is bounded methods are known which have asymptotically at least quadratic rate of convergence.
