    • Ball convergence for Steffensen-type fourth-order methods 

      Argyros, Ioannis K; George, Santhosh (International Journal of Interactive Multimedia and Artificial Intelligence (IJIMAI), 2015)
      We present a local convergence analysis for a family of Steffensen-type fourth-order methods in order to approximate a solution of a nonlinear equation. We use hypotheses up to the first derivative in contrast to earlier ...
