I was wondering how FindRoot works when trying to use a algebraic initial point.
where h is function of theta, for example:
(notice that this is for a given m).
What should I use as a starting point?
If I just use 1 as a starting point, it returns a mistake. However, I could use the solution of a first step approximation, but it doesn't work as well. Here is what I mean:
(where h1 is a different function, similar to h).
Plugging t0 into ??? returns a mistake as well. This is probably due to the format?
Although, even if I use
and plugging theta[m] into ??? gives me a mistake.
