Some new variants of Newton’s method. (English) Zbl 1065.65067

The paper is devoted to the study of some hybrid Newton-type methods of the form \[ x_{n+1}=x_n-\frac{f(x_n)}{E(f,x_n)}, \] where \(E(f,x_n)\) is either \(\frac{2f'(x_n)f'(z_{n+1})}{f'(x_n)+f'(z_{n+1})}\) or \(f'((x_n+x_{n+1})/2)\), with \[ z_{n+1}=x_n-\frac{f(x_n)}{f'(x_n)}. \]
