An Optimal Fourth Order Iterative Method for Solving Nonlinear Equations and Its Dynamics
Thu, 05 Nov 2015 14:33:33 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jca/2015/259167/
We present a new fourth order method for finding simple roots of a nonlinear equation . In terms of computational cost, per iteration the method uses one evaluation of the function and two evaluations of its first derivative. Therefore, the method has optimal order with efficiency index 1.587 which is better than efficiency index 1.414 of Newton method and the same with Jarratt method and Kingâ€™s family. Numerical examples are given to support that the method thus obtained is competitive with other similar robust methods. The conjugacy maps and extraneous fixed points of the presented method and other existing fourth order methods are discussed, and their basins of attraction are also given to demonstrate their dynamical behavior in the complex plane.

Good Linear Operators and Meromorphic Solutions of Functional Equations
Thu, 14 May 2015 14:12:16 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jca/2015/960204/
Nevanlinna theory provides us with many tools applicable to the study of value distribution of meromorphic solutions of differential equations. Analogues of some of these tools have been recently developed for difference, difference, and ultradiscrete equations. In many cases, the methodologies used in the study of meromorphic solutions of differential, difference, and difference equations are largely similar. The purpose of this paper is to collect some of these tools in a common toolbox for the study of general classes of functional equations by introducing notion of a good linear operator, which satisfies certain regularity conditions in terms of value distribution theory. As an example case, we apply our methods to study the growth of meromorphic solutions of the functional equation , where is a linear polynomial in and , where is good linear operator, is a polynomial in with degree deg , both with small meromorphic coefficients, and is a meromorphic function.

http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jca/2014/263917/

Applying the Faber polynomial expansions to the meromorphic Bazilevic functions, we obtain the general coefficient bounds for biBazilevic functions. We also demonstrate the unpredictability of the behavior of early coefficients of biBazilevic functions.

Tue, 04 Feb 2014 14:16:01 +0000
http://www.hindawi.com/journals/jca/2014/260953/
Let be a pair of holomorphic functions. In this expositional paper we apply the calculus to prove the symmetric version “ on ” as well as the homotopic version of Rouché's theorem for arbitrary planar compacta . Using Eilenberg's representation theorem we also give a converse to the homotopic version. Then we derive two analogs of Rouché's theorem for continuousholomorphic pairs (a symmetric and a nonsymmetric one). One of the rarely presented properties of the nonsymmetric version is that in the fundamental boundary hypothesis, , equality is allowed.
