New Efficient Fourth Order Method for Solving Nonlinear Equations

Dr. Farooq Ahmad | Sajjad Hussain | Sifat Hussain | Arif Rafiq



In a paper [Appl. Math. Comput., 188 (2) (2007) 1587--1591], authors have suggested and analyzed a method for solving nonlinear equations. In the present work, we modified this method by using the finite difference scheme, which has a quintic convergence. We have compared this modified Halley method with some other iterative of fifth-orders convergence methods, which shows that this new method having convergence of fourth order, is efficient.
