Special Issue Information

Dear Colleagues,

As you know, many  problems coming from several areas as medicine, biology, economics, finance or engineering can be described in terms of nonlinear equations or systems of such equations, which can take different forms, from algebraic, differential, integral or integro-differential models to variational inequalities or equilibrium problems, to name only a few. For this reason, nonlinear problems constitute one of the most fruitful fields of study in pure and applied mathematics.

However, usually there are not available direct methods allowing us to deal with their effective resolution. Hence the enormous interest in its numerical treatment.

This special issue is intended to collect recent advances in this area. The topics of interest for the special issue include, but are not limited to, NUMERICAL METHODS FOR SOLVING:

  • Nonlinear differential equations.
  • Nonlinear integral equations.
  • Nonlinear integro-differential equations.
  • Nonlinear variational equations.
  • Nonlinear optimization problems.
  • Nonlinear control problems.
  • Equilibrium problems.
  • Nonlinear algebraic equations.

In addition to all this, their applications to real-world are also especially welcome.

A process for solving an algebraic equation was presented by Newton in 1669 and later by Raphson in 1690. This technique is called Newton’s method or Newton–Raphson method and is even today a popular technique for solving nonlinear equations in abstract spaces. The objective of this article is to update developments in the convergence of this method. In particular, it is shown that the Kantorovich theory for solving nonlinear equations using Newton’s method can be replaced by a finer one with no additional and even weaker conditions. Moreover, the convergence order two is proven under these conditions. Furthermore, the new ratio of convergence is at least as small. The same methodology can be used to extend the applicability of other numerical methods. Numerical experiments complement this study. Full article

In this article, we propose a new methodology to construct and study generalized three-step numerical methods for solving nonlinear equations in Banach spaces. These methods are very general and include other methods already in the literature as special cases. The convergence analysis of the specialized methods is been given by assuming the existence of high-order derivatives which are not shown in these methods. Therefore, these constraints limit the applicability of the methods to equations involving operators that are sufficiently many times differentiable although the methods may converge. Moreover, the convergence is shown under a different set of conditions. Motivated by the optimization considerations and the above concerns, we present a unified convergence analysis for the generalized numerical methods relying on conditions involving only the operators appearing in the method. This is the novelty of the article. Special cases and examples are presented to conclude this article. Full article

First of all, in this paper we obtain a perturbed version of the geometric series theorem, which allows us to present an iterative numerical method to approximate the fixed point of a contractive affine operator. This result requires some approximations that we obtain using the projections associated with certain Schauder bases. Next, an algorithm is designed to approximate the solution of Fredholm’s linear integral equation, and we illustrate the behavior of the method with some numerical examples. Full article

This paper proposes an extrapolation method to solve a class of non-linear weakly singular kernel Volterra integral equations with vanishing delay. After the existence and uniqueness of the solution to the original equation are proved, we combine an improved trapezoidal quadrature formula with an interpolation technique to obtain an approximate equation, and then we enhance the error accuracy of the approximate solution using the Richardson extrapolation, on the basis of the asymptotic error expansion. Simultaneously, a posteriori error estimate for the method is derived. Some illustrative examples demonstrating the efficiency of the method are given. Full article

In this paper, we construct and study a new family of multi-point Ehrlich-type iterative methods for approximating all the zeros of a uni-variate polynomial simultaneously. The first member of this family is the two-point Ehrlich-type iterative method introduced and studied by Trićković and Petković in 1999. The main purpose of the paper is to provide local and semilocal convergence analysis of the multi-point Ehrlich-type methods. Our local convergence theorem is obtained by an approach that was introduced by the authors in 2020. Two numerical examples are presented to show the applicability of our semilocal convergence theorem. Full article
