In the recent literature, some fractional one-point Newton-type methods have been proposed in order to find roots of nonlinear equations using fractional derivatives. In this paper, we introduce a new fractional Newton-type method with order of convergence $α + 1$ and compare it with the existing fractional Newton method with order $2 α$ . Moreover, we also introduce a multipoint fractional Traub-type method with order $2 α + 1$ and compare its performance with that of its first step. Some numerical tests and analysis of the dependence on the initial estimations are made for each case, including a comparison with classical Newton ( $α = 1$ of the first step of the class) and classical Traub’s scheme ( $α = 1$ of fractional proposed multipoint method). In this comparison, some cases are found where classical Newton and Traub’s methods do not converge and the proposed methods do, among other advantages. View Full-Text
