Iterative Methods for Linear and Nonlinear Equations

Author: C. T. Kelley
Publisher: SIAM
ISBN: 1611970946
Release Date: 1995
Genre: Iterative methods (Mathematics)

Linear and nonlinear systems of equations are the basis for many, if not most, of the models of phenomena in science and engineering, and their efficient numerical solution is critical to progress in these areas. This is the first book to be published on nonlinear equations since the mid-1980s. Although it stresses recent developments in this area, such as Newton-Krylov methods, considerable material on linear equations has been incorporated. This book focuses on a small number of methods and treats them in depth. The author provides a complete analysis of the conjugate gradient and generalized minimum residual iterations as well as recent advances including Newton-Krylov methods, incorporation of inexactness and noise into the analysis, new proofs and implementations of Broyden's method, and globalization of inexact Newton methods. Examples, methods, and algorithmic choices are based on applications to infinite dimensional problems such as partial differential equations and integral equations. The analysis and proof techniques are constructed with the infinite dimensional setting in mind and the computational examples and exercises are based on the MATLAB environment.

Iterative Methods for the Solution of Equations

Publisher: American Mathematical Soc.
ISBN: 0828403120
Release Date: 1982-01-01
Genre: Mathematics

From the Preface (1964): ``This book presents a general theory of iteration algorithms for the numerical solution of equations and systems of equations. The relationship between the quantity and the quality of information used by an algorithm and the efficiency of the algorithm is investigated. Iteration functions are divided into four classes depending on whether they use new information at one or at several points and whether or not they reuse old information. Known iteration functions are systematized and new classes of computationally effective iteration functions are introduced. Our interest in the efficient use of information is influenced by the widespread use of computing machines ... The mathematical foundations of our subject are treated with rigor, but rigor in itself is not the main object. Some of the material is of wider application ... Most of the material is new and unpublished. Every attempt has been made to keep the subject in proper historical perspective ... ''

Publisher: Elsevier
ISBN: 9781483223643
Release Date: 2016-06-03
Genre: Mathematics

Solution of Equations and Systems of Equations, Second Edition deals with the Laguerre iteration, interpolating polynomials, method of steepest descent, and the theory of divided differences. The book reviews the formula for confluent divided differences, Newton's interpolation formula, general interpolation problems, and the triangular schemes for computing divided differences. The text explains the method of False Position (Regula Falsi) and cites examples of computation using the Regula Falsi. The book discusses iterations by monotonic iterating functions and analyzes the connection of the Regula Falsi with the theory of iteration. The text also explains the idea of the Newton-Raphson method and compares it with the Regula Falsi. The book also cites asymptotic behavior of errors in the Regula Falsi iteration, as well as the theorem on the error of the Taylor approximation to the root. The method of steepest descent or gradient method proposed by Cauchy ensures "global convergence" in very general conditions. This book is suitable for mathematicians, students, and professor of calculus, and advanced mathematics.

Analytic Computational Complexity contains the proceedings of the Symposium on Analytic Computational Complexity held by the Computer Science Department, Carnegie-Mellon University, Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania, on April 7-8, 1975. The symposium provided a forum for assessing progress made in analytic computational complexity and covered topics ranging from strict lower and upper bounds on iterative computational complexity to numerical stability of iterations for solution of nonlinear equations and large linear systems. Comprised of 14 chapters, this book begins with an introduction to analytic computational complexity before turning to proof techniques used in analytic complexity. Subsequent chapters focus on the complexity of obtaining starting points for solving operator equations by Newton's method; maximal order of multipoint iterations using n evaluations; the use of integrals in the solution of nonlinear equations in N dimensions; and the complexity of differential equations. Algebraic constructions in an analytic setting are also discussed, along with the computational complexity of approximation operators.

Homotopy Analysis Method in Nonlinear Differential Equations

Author: Shijun Liao
Publisher: Springer Science & Business Media
ISBN: 9783642251320
Release Date: 2012-06-22
Genre: Mathematics

"Homotopy Analysis Method in Nonlinear Differential Equations" presents the latest developments and applications of the analytic approximation method for highly nonlinear problems, namely the homotopy analysis method (HAM). Unlike perturbation methods, the HAM has nothing to do with small/large physical parameters. In addition, it provides great freedom to choose the equation-type of linear sub-problems and the base functions of a solution. Above all, it provides a convenient way to guarantee the convergence of a solution. This book consists of three parts. Part I provides its basic ideas and theoretical development. Part II presents the HAM-based Mathematica package BVPh 1.0 for nonlinear boundary-value problems and its applications. Part III shows the validity of the HAM for nonlinear PDEs, such as the American put option and resonance criterion of nonlinear travelling waves. New solutions to a number of nonlinear problems are presented, illustrating the originality of the HAM. Mathematica codes are freely available online to make it easy for readers to understand and use the HAM. This book is suitable for researchers and postgraduates in applied mathematics, physics, nonlinear mechanics, finance and engineering. Dr. Shijun Liao, a distinguished professor of Shanghai Jiao Tong University, is a pioneer of the HAM.

Computational Methods in Nonlinear Analysis

Publisher: World Scientific
ISBN: 9789814405836
Release Date: 2013
Genre: Mathematics

The field of computational sciences has seen a considerable development in mathematics, engineering sciences, and economic equilibrium theory. Researchers in this field are faced with the problem of solving a variety of equations or variational inequalities. We note that in computational sciences, the practice of numerical analysis for finding such solutions is essentially connected to variants of Newton's method. The efficient computational methods for finding the solutions of fixed point problems, nonlinear equations and variational inclusions are the first goal of the present book. The second goal is the applications of these methods in nonlinear problems and the connection with fixed point theory. This book is intended for researchers in computational sciences, and as a reference book for an advanced computational methods in nonlinear analysis. We collect the recent results on the convergence analysis of numerical algorithms in both finite-dimensional and infinite-dimensional spaces, and present several applications and connections with fixed point theory. The book contains abundant and updated bibliography, and provides comparison between various investigations made in recent years in the field of computational nonlinear analysis.
