Remarks on solving the systems of equations by iterative methods


In this paper we give a condition for the convergence of an iterative method of Gauss-Seidel type  \[ x_i = \varphi (x_{i-1}, y_{i-1}) \\ y_i = \psi (x_i, y_{i-1})\] for solving the nonlinear system of equations of the type: \[ x = \varphi (x, y) \\ y = \psi (x, y). \] We then provide some error evaluations in case of exact and approximate computations. We also provide a sufficient condition when the system contains \(k\) equations with \(k\) unknowns \[x_i = \varphi_i (x_1,x_2,…,x_k), \quad i=1,…,k.\]
