This article is devoted to the discussion of Newton's method. Beginning with the old results of A.Cayley and E.Schröder we proceed to the theory of complex dynamical systems on the sphere, which was developed by G.Julia and P.Fatou at the beginning of this century, and continued by several mathematicians in recent years.
