Construction of Globally Convergent Iteration Functions for the Solution of Polynomial Equations

Traub, Joseph F.

Iteration functions for the approximation of zeros of a polynomial P are usually given as explicit functions of P and its derivatives. We introduce a class of iteration functions which are themselves constructed according to a certain algorithm given below. The construction of the iteration functions requires only simple polynomial manipulation which may be performed on a computer.
