Optimal Methods for Finding Simple and Multiple Roots of Nonlinear Equations and their Basins of Attraction
Keywords:Non-linear equation, Newton's method, Frontini-Sormani method, weight function, multiple root, basin of attraction
In this paper, using the variant of Frontini-Sormani method, some higher order methods for finding the roots (simple and multiple) of nonlinear equations are proposed. In particular, we have constructed an optimal fourth order method and a family of sixth order method for finding a simple root. Further, an optimal fourth order method for finding a multiple root of a nonlinear equation is also proposed. We have used different weight functions to a cubically convergent For ntini-Sormani method for the construction of these methods. The proposed methods are tested on numerical examples and compare the results with some existing methods. Further, we have presented the basins of attraction of these methods to understand their dynamics visually.
