MaxIterations

MaxIterations
is an option that specifies the maximum number of iterations that should be tried in various built-in functions and algorithms.
Limit the number of iterations attempted in numerical minimization:
In[1]:=

MaxIterations can be infinite:
Limit or increase the number of steps taken with MaxIterations:
The default number of iterations for FindRoot is 100:
Eventually the algorithm stalls out since this mollifier function has all derivatives 0 at :
Use a limited number of iterations to select candidates for a global minimum:
Find the minimum to 10 digits using arbitrary-precision arithmetic:
This can be done automatically with NMinimize:
