    Newton-Picard methods are iterative methods that work well for computing roots of nonlinear equations within a continuation framework. This project presents one of these methods and includes the results of a computation involving the Brusselator problem performed by an implementation of the method. This work was done in collaboration with Andrew Salinger at Sandia National Laboratories.
