Abstract

Let \(h(x):=f(x)+g(x)=0\), with \(f\) differentiable and \(g\) continuous, where \(f,g,h:X \rightarrow X\), \(X\) a Banach space. 

The Newton method cannot be applied for solving \(h(x)=0\), and we propose an iterative method for solving the nonlinear equation, by combining the Newton method (for the differentiable part) with the chord/secant method (for the nondifferentiable part): \[x_{k+1} = \big(f^\prime(x_k)+[x_{k-1},x_k;g]\big)^{-1}(f(x_k)+g(x_k)).\]

We show that the r-convergence order of the method is the same as of the chord/secant method.

We provide some numerical examples and compare different methods for a nonlinear system in \(\mathbb{R}^2\).
