As long as J is Lipschitz continuous and nonsingular at x and the initial guess is good enough, the convergence of this iteration is quadratic.

– from Numerical Analysis by Lloyd N. Trefethen

Is it just me? Or is that the funniest sentence you didn’t understand?

    Sounds fun. I don’t know what Lipschitz continuous is, but with a name like that it’s got to be fun math. Heck, I can’t imagine that being said in an undergrad glass without at least some snickers the first few times.
