bisect

Floating point bisection method for JavaScript

Usage

Install using npm:

npm install bisect

And use as follows:

var bisect = require("bisect")

//Find cube root of 5 to 8 decimal places
console.log(bisect(
  function(x) {
    return x * x * x - 5 > 0
  },
  -10, 10, 1e-8))

require("bisect")(predicate, lo, hi[, tolerance])

Supposing that predicate is monotone over the interval [lo,hi), finds the first occurence of where predicate is true up to a resolution of tolerance.
