A comparison of some efficient numerical methods for a nonlinear elliptic problem. (English) Zbl 1247.65148
The author compares and realizes three efficient iterative methods (the gradient, Newton and quasi-Newton method), which have mesh independent convergence, and proposes some improvements for them. Numerical results are compared with the theoretical ones.
