Otto, Maybe the following will help you. Let n be a counter for the number of iterations. n=0; x = FixedPoint[ f, x, SameTest :> (n++;Abs[#2-#1]<somesmallnumber&)] Now the value of n is the number of iterations. Note the SetDelayed in SameTest. Regards, Fred Simons Eindhoven University of Technology
