Stability of iterative roots is important in their numerical computation. It is known that under some conditions iterative roots of orientation-preserving self-mappings are both globally stable and locally stable but globally unstable. Although the global instability implies the general global ( ) instability, the local stability does not guarantee the local ( ) stability. In this paper we generally prove the local ( ) stability for iterative roots. For this purpose we need a uniform estimate for the approximation to the conjugation in linearization, which is given by improving the method used for the case.
