Inverse Numerical Iterative Technique for Finding all Roots of Nonlinear Equations with Engineering Applications
Abstract
We introduce here a new twostep derivatefree inverse simultaneous iterative method for estimating all roots of nonlinear equation. It is proved that convergence order of the newly constructed method is four. Lower bound of the convergence order is determined using Mathematica and verified with theoretical local convergence order of the method introduced. Some nonlinear models which are taken from physical and engineering sciences as numerical test examples to demonstrate the performance and efficiency of the newly constructed modified inverse simultaneous methods as compared to classical methods existing in literature are presented. Dynamical planes and residual graphs are drawn using MATLAB to elaborate efficiency, robustness, and authentication in its domain.
1. Introduction
A wide range of problems in physical and engineering sciences can be formulated as a nonlinear equation:
The most ancient and popular iterative technique for approximating single roots of (1) is Newton’s method [1] which has local quadratic convergence:
Nedzibove et al., in [2], presented the inverse method of the same order corresponding to method (2):
In the last few years, lot of work has been carried out on numerical iterative methods which approximate single root at a time of (1). There is another class of derivativefree iterative methods which approximates all roots of (1) simultaneously. The simultaneous iterative methods for approximating all roots of (1) are very popular due to their global convergence and parallel implementation on computer (see, e.g., Weierstrass [3], Kanno [4], Proinov [5], Petkovi´c [6], Mir [7], Nourein [8], Aberth [9], and reference cited there in [10–22]).
Among derivativefree simultaneous methods, Weierstrass–Dochive [23] method (abbreviated as WDK) is the most attractive method given bywhereis Weierstrass’ Correction. Method (4) has local quadratic convergence.
Nedzibove [2] introduced a new modification to (4), that is, an inverse method to WDK abbreviated as IWDK, i.e.,
The main aim of this paper is to construct a twostep inverse method of convergence order four.
2. Construction of Family of Simultaneous Method for Distinct Roots
We modify the Weierstrass method (4) as follows:where and denote it by WDK2. Let us now convert method (7) into inverse iterative method as follows:where .
Thus, method (8) is a twostep inverse method abbreviated as IWM2.
2.1. Convergence Analysis
We prove here that convergence order of the IWM2 method is four.
Let be an open convex subset, and m times differentiable operator be continuous, and the sequence be defined by :where norm in is defined as .
Theorem 1. Let and be normed spaces. Take an open convex subset D of X for a u times Frēchet differential operator i.e., Then, for any x, y
Using Theorem 1, we have the following.
Theorem 2. Let if(i)(ii)Then, there exists such that, for any , the sequence converges to
Proof. Let be such that, and there exists such thatwhere . Using hypothesis (2), ; then, (ii) and Theorem 1 impliesThus, . Using the above relation for , we haveUsing (14), recursively, we haveThus, from inequality (14), is at least . Now, consider IWM2 as a vector function, i.e., , whereFor a fixed point , it is not difficult to prove and higher order partial derivative is not equal to zero. Thus, IWM2 has at least fourthorder convergence.
Theorem 3. Let be simple roots of (1) and for sufficiently close initial distinct estimations of the roots, respectively; IWM2 has then convergence order 4.
Proof. Consider , , and be the errors in , , and , respectively. For simplicity, we omit iteration index . From first step of IWM2, we haveThus, we obtainUsing the expression [2] in (18), we haveIf we assume all errors are of the same order, i.e., ; then, we haveFrom secondstep of IWM2, we haveThus, we obtainAs from the above argument using in (22), we haveIf we assume all errors are of the same order, i.e., ; then,Hence, the theorem is proved.
2.1.1. Using CAS for Verification of Convergence Order
Considerand the first component of iterative schemes to find zeros of (25), , simultaneously. In order to verify Theorem 2 conditions, we have to express the differential of an operator in terms of their partial derivate of its component as :and so on.
The lower bound of the convergence obtained until the first nonzero element of the row is found. The Mathematica code is given for each of the consider methods as follows.

(1) Basins of Attraction. To provoke the basins of attraction of iterative schemes WDK, IWDK, WDK2, and IWM2 for the root of nonlinear equation, we execute the real and imaginary parts of the starting approximation as two axes over a mesh of in complex plane. Using as a stopping criteria and maximum number of iterations as 25. We allow different colors to mark to which root the iterative scheme converges and black in other case. Color brightness in basins shows less number of iterations. For the generation of basins, we consider the following four nonlinear functions, i.e., and .
The elapsed time from Table 1 and brightness in color in Figure 1(d)–2(d) shows the dominance behavior of IWM2 over WDK, IWDK, and WDK2, respectively.

3. Numerical Results
Some nonlinear models from engineering and physical sciences are considered to illustrate the performance and efficiency of WDK2 and IWM2 using CAS Maple 18 with 64 digits floating point arithmetic for all computer calculations. We approximate the roots of (1) rather than the exact roots which depend on computer precision , and the following stopping criteria are used to terminate the computer program:where represents the absolute error. We take . In Tables 2–5, CO represents convergence order of iterative schemes WDK2 and IWM2, respectively.

An isothermal stirred tank reactor (CSTR) is considered here. Items A and R are fed to the reactor at rates of Q and qQ, respectively. Complex reaction developed in the reactor is given as follows:For a simple feedback control system, this problem was first tested by Douglas (see [28]). During his searching, he designed the following equation of transfer function of the reactor: being the gain of the proportional controller. This transfer function yields the following nonlinear equation by taking :The transfer function has the four negative real roots, i.e.,

4. Conclusion
In this work, new twostep derivativefree inverse iterative methods of convergence order 4 for the simultaneous approximations of all roots of a nonlinear equation (1) are introduced and discussed. Dynamical planes and basins of attraction are presented to show the global convergence behavior of inverse simultaneous iterative methods and twostep classical Weierstrass method. Brightness in color in the dynamical planes of IWM2 shows less number of iteration steps as compared to classical simultaneous methods WDK2 for finding all roots of (1). The results of numerical test examples from Tables 2–5, CPU time from Figure 3, and residual error from Figures 4–7, corroborate with theoretical analysis and illustrate the effectiveness and rapid convergence of our proposed derivativefree inverse simultaneous iterative method as compared to the WDK2.
