Concerning the rate of convergence of Newton’s process. (English) Zbl 0314.65023
Summary: The author establishes an explicit formula for the partial sums $$x+\omega(x)+\ldots+\omega^(n)x$$ where $$\omega$$ is the rate of convergence obtained by the author [Numer. Math. 25, 279–285 (1976; Zbl 0304.65037)] for the Newton’s process $$\omega(x) =\frac{x^2}{2(x^2+d)^{1/2}}$$.
