A comparison of some efficient numerical methods for a nonlinear elliptic problem

Balázs Kovács (2012)

Open Mathematics

The aim of this paper is to compare and realize three efficient iterative methods, which have mesh independent convergence, and to propose some improvements for them. We look for the numerical solution of a nonlinear model problem using FEM discretization with gradient and Newton type methods. Three numerical methods have been carried out, namely, the gradient, Newton and quasi-Newton methods. We have solved the model problem with these methods, we have investigated the differences between them...

A convergence analysis of Newton-like methods for singular equations using outer or generalized inverses

Ioannis K. Argyros (2005)

Applicationes Mathematicae

The Newton-Kantorovich approach and the majorant principle are used to provide new local and semilocal convergence results for Newton-like methods using outer or generalized inverses in a Banach space setting. Using the same conditions as before, we provide more precise information on the location of the solution and on the error bounds on the distances involved. Moreover since our Newton-Kantorovich-type hypothesis is weaker than before, we can cover cases where the original Newton-Kantorovich...

A fixed point method to compute solvents of matrix polynomials

Fernando Marcos, Edgar Pereira (2010)

Mathematica Bohemica

Matrix polynomials play an important role in the theory of matrix differential equations. We develop a fixed point method to compute solutions of matrix polynomials equations, where the matricial elements of the matrix polynomial are considered separately as complex polynomials. Numerical examples illustrate the method presented.

A global analysis of Newton iterations for determining turning points

Vladimír Janovský, Viktor Seige (1993)

Applications of Mathematics

The global convergence of a direct method for determining turning (limit) points of a parameter-dependent mapping is analysed. It is assumed that the relevant extended system has a singular root for a special parameter value. The singular root is clasified as a b i f u r c a t i o n s i n g u l a r i t y (i.e., as a d e g e n e r a t e turning point). Then, the Theorz for Imperfect Bifurcation offers a particular scenario for the split of the singular root into a finite number of regular roots (turning points) due to a given parameter imperfection. The relationship...
