iterative process

Iterative Process

An algorithm which involves repeated use of the same formula or steps. Typically, the process begins with a starting value which is plugged into the formula. The result is then taken as the new starting point which is then plugged into the formula again. The process continues to repeat.

Examples of iterative processes are factor trees, recursive formulas, and Newton’s method.
