A third-order modification of Newton’s method for multiple roots. (English) Zbl 1162.65342

Summary: We present a new third-order modification of Newton’s method for multiple roots, which is based on existing third-order multiple root-finding methods. Numerical examples show that the new method is competitive to other methods for multiple roots.
