Hi, I am trying to find out the complex root of a very large nonlinear equation involving bessel functions. What is the bestsuited numerical method?? Will bisection method be helpful in finding complex root? ... I tried it, but does not give me the proper result... pls help me... urgent. Thanks.

I would recommend the NewtonRaphson Method: to solve f(x)= 0, construct the sequence . That will typically converge fairly rapidly to a root. One advantage it has over bisection is that you do not have to find two values of x that you know have a root between them although, the closer you choose to a root, the faster the sequence will converge.

There are plenty of methods that are available for you to solve these type of equations Newton Raphson, Gauss elimination, GaussSeidel, Newton forward interpolation formula, etc. If you have linear equations, then I would like to tell you that you can use a linear equation solver for solving them.
