Abstract: The Newton-Raphson (NR)methodis one ofthemostimportant and popularmethods to determine an optimal solution in many applications in the decision sciences and education. The NR method can be used for an optimal solution to obtain estimates in regression models, the maxima or minima of many functionsin both the one-dimensional and multi-dimensional cases, or to solve systems of equations with many unknowns in both the one-dimensional and multi-dimensional cases. Applications of the NR method cover a wide variety of interesting cases, including the decisionsciences and the teaching of mathematics-related subjects. The primary purpose of the paper is to provide a universal approach to the theory and practice of the NR method. In addition, we focus the discussion on applications in decision sciences, statistics, portfolio optimization, and education, among others Interesting potential research directions of the NR method are also discussed.
