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, F ( x ) = 0 , F : D R n R n . 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 ( m i , m s ) , 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. View Full-Text
