New versions of Newton method: step-size choice, convergence domain and under-determined equations

Boris Polyak, Andrey Tremba

Newton method is one of the most powerful methods for finding solutions of nonlinear equations and for proving their existence. In its "pure" form it has fast convergence near the solution, but small convergence domain. On the other hand damped Newton method has slower convergence rate, but weaker conditions on the initial point. We provide new versions of Newton-like algorithms, resulting in combinations of Newton and damped Newton method with special step-size choice, and estimate its convergence domain. Under some assumptions the convergence is global. Explicit complexity results are also addressed. The adaptive version of the algorithm (with no a priori constants knowledge) is presented. The method is applicable for under-determined equations (with $m
