We give a fast method to solve numerically some systems of nonlinear equations. This method applies basically to all systems which can be put in the form UV(X)=Y, where U and V are two possibly nonlinear operators. It uses a modification of Newton's algorithm, in the sense that one projects alternatively onto two subsets. But, here, these subsets are not subspaces any more, but manifolds in a Euclidean space.
