Convergence and Error Estimate of the Steffensen Method
We present the Steffensen method in space. The convergence theorem is established by using the technique of majorizing function. Meanwhile, an error estimate is given. It avoids the calculus of derivative but has the same convergence order 2 with Newton's method. Finally, illustrative examples are included to demonstrate the validity and applicability of the technique.
