Abstract : In the report a systematic search program is given for an approximate fixed point of a continuous mapping of either the unit ncube or a 'preferred' nsimplex (on the unit ncube) into itself. A detailed discussion of the fixed point algorithm and the coding of this algorithm is included in this report. A result concerning the estimate of the error is given and also three examples which illustrate the application of this routine. (Author)
