Rate of Linear Convergence

by Gilmar


Which of the following iterations will converge to the indicated fixed point a (provided xo is chosen sufficiently close to a) if the iteration does converge

For linear convergence, give the rate of the linear convergence. If the iteration does not converge, re-write the iteration in another form so that it does converge (provided x0 sufficiently close to a)

a. xn+1 = -16+6 xn, a=2

b. .xn+1 = -2/3x_n + 1/ x²n, a= 3 1/3 ~ 1.4422

c . . . xn+1 = 12/(1+ xn), a=3
