On an Iterative Algorithm for Solving Nonlinear Operator Equations

Ioannis K. Argyros[1]

(1) Cameron University, Lawton, USA

The Secant method for solving nonlinear operator equations in Banach spaces is considered. By assuming that the Fréchet derivative of a nonlinear operator is only Hölder continuous we show that the secant iteration converges to a locally unique solution. Examples are also given where our results apply and some related ones already in the literature fail.

Keywords: Banach space, Secant method, Lipschitz-Hölder continuity
