# Newton

This is Newton’s approximation method for finding the roots of a polynomial. It uses the polynomial *x^3=1* and counts the number of iterations needed to reach the approximate value of the root. See the *tutorial chapter*.

This fractal doesn’t have Julia sets, but XaoS is able to generate Julia-like sets which are also very interesting (they are sometimes called “Nova formulae”).
