Does Mathematica implement binary search to find a 0, and ternary search to find a local min/max?:
As nearly as I can tell, there's no "BinarySearch" method for FindRoot, nor a "TernarySearch" method for FindMaximum.
I realize these are numerical, not symbolic, methods, but I was surprised Mathematica doesn't implement them.
I even ran into a case where binary search would have worked, but FindRoot didn't.
It would be easy to implement both in Mathematica, but I can't believe it's not already included?
