Iterative methods for solving nonlinear equations are said to have memory when the calculation of the next iterate requires the use of more than one previous iteration. Methods with memory usually have a very stable behavior in the sense of the wideness of the set of convergent initial estimations. With the right choice of parameters, iterative methods without memory can increase their order of convergence significantly, becoming schemes with memory. In this work, starting from a simple method without memory, we increase its order of convergence without adding new functional evaluations by approximating the accelerating parameter with Newton interpolation polynomials of degree one and two. Using this technique in the multidimensional case, we extend the proposed method to systems of nonlinear equations. Numerical tests are presented to verify the theoretical results and a study of the dynamics of the method is applied to different problems to show its stability. View Full-Text
