It is shown that the nature and location of points at which Bairstow’s method becomes undefined depend on elementary properties of the polynomial to which it is applied. Examples are given that illustrate the dynamics of Bairstow’s method when a singularity occurs at a solution point, and a linear convergence rate is proved for polynomials with a repeated irreducible quadratic factor.
