A note on the efficiency index of a class of two step Hermite iterative methods


One  considers Hermite interpolatory methods, based on two interpolatory nodes which have the same multiplicity order. Duing the efficiency index, defined by A. M. Ostrowski, one determines the method of optimal efficiency index.
