We investigate the efficiency of multi-step Newton method (the classical Newton method in which the first derivative is re-evaluated periodically after m
steps) for solving nonlinear equations,
. We highlight the following property of multi-step Newton method with respect to some other Newton-type method: for a given n
, there exist thresholds of m
, that is an interval
, such that for m
inside of this interval, the efficiency index of multi-step Newton method is better than that of other Newton-type method. We also search for optimal values of m
