#### Global monotone convergence of Newton-like iteration for a nonlinear eigen-problem

##### Peichang Guo

The nonlinear eigen-problem $Ax+F(x)=\lambda x$ is studied where $A$ is an $n\times n$ irreducible Stieltjes matrix. Under certain conditions, this problem has a unique positive solution. We show that, starting from a multiple of the positive eigenvector of $A$, the Newton-like iteration for this problem converges monotonically. Numerical results illustrate the effectiveness of this Newton-like method.
