Effective Algorithm for Solving Symmetric Nonlinear Equations

Jamilu Sabi'u


In this article, eective and ecient solver for symmetric nonlinear equations without com-
puting exact gradient and Jacobian with a very low memory requirement is proposed. The
global convergence of the proposed method was also established under some rigorous condi-
tions with nonmonotone line search. Numerical experiment shows the proposed method is
