ABSTRACT In this paper, we suggest a third-order method formed by the composition of Newton and Steffensen methods for finding simple and real roots of a nonlinear equation in single variable. Per iteration the formula requires two evaluations of the function and single evaluation of the derivative. Experiments show that the method is suitable in the cases where Newton and Steffensen methods fail.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, we present and analyze a sixth-order convergent method for solving nonlinear equations. The method is free from second derivatives and permits f’(x)=0 in some points. It requires three evaluations of the given function and two evaluations of its derivative in each step. Some numerical examples illustrate that the presented method is more efficient and performs better than classical Newton’s method.

    ABSTRACT: We study the local convergence of some Aitken–Steffensen–Hermite type methods of order three. We obtain that under some reasonable conditions on the monotony and convexity of the nonlinear function, the iterations offer bilateral approximations for the solution, which can be efficiently used as a posteriori estimations.

    ABSTRACT: In this paper, a new approach is presented to accelerate the nonlinear analysis of structures with low computational cost. The method is essentially based on Newton–Raphson method, which has been improved in each iteration to achieve faster convergence. The normal flow algorithm has been employed to pass successfully through the limit points and through the entire equilibrium path. Subsequently, numerical examples are performed to demonstrate the efficiency of the formulation. The results show better performance, accuracy and rate of convergence of the present method to deal with nonlinear analysis of structures.
