Title: A stopping criterion for polynomial root finding
Author: Adams, Duane A.
Date: February 1967
Abstract: When solving for the roots of a polynomial, it is generally difficult to know just when to terminate the iteration process. In this paper an algorithm is derived and discussed which allows one to terminate the iteration process on the basis of calculated bounds for the roundoff error.
