then converges to p of order with asymptotic error constant .
|g’(x)| < k, for all x (a,b).
If g’(p) 0, then for any number p0 in [a,b], the sequence pn = g(pn-1), for n 1, converges only linearly to the unique fixed point p in [a,b].
Let p be a solution for the equation x = g(x). Suppose that g’(p) = 0 and g” is contin-uous and strictly bounded by M on an open interval I containing p. Then there exists a > 0 such that, for p0 [p - , p + ], the sequence defined by pn = g(pn-1), when
n 1, converges at least quadratically to p. Moreover, for sufficiently large values of n,
f(x) = (x – p)m q(x), where q(x) 0.
f C1[a,b]has a simple zero at p in (a,b) if and only if f(p) = 0 but f’(p) 0.
The function f Cm[a,b] has a zero of multiplicity m at p in (a,b) if and only if
0 = f(p) = f’(p) =f”(p) = ... = f(m-1)(p) but f(m)(p) 0.
and the sequence converges “more rapidly” than does .
pn = pn+1 – pn, for n 0.
can be written:
the sequence converges to p
faster than in the sense that
