the solution sought is a limit of a sequence of elements, and each element can be generated based on the previous ones. Initial elements are supposed to be given. Usual iterative methods are the Newton method, the successive approximations, etc.

## A note on inexact secant methods

Abstract The inexact secant method \([x_{k-1},x_{k};F]s_{k}=-F(x_k) +r_k\), \( x_{k+1}=x_k+s_k\), \( k=1,2,\ldots\), \( x_0,x_1 \in {\mathbb R}^n\) is considered for solving the nonlinear…
