Expanding the Applicability of Stirling’s Method under Weaker Conditions and Restricted Convergence Regions


In this paper we have provided sufficient conditions to study semilocal and local convergence of the Stirling’s method. The method is used to find fixed points of nonlinear operator equation. We assume Lipschtiz continuity type conditions on the first Fréchet derivative of the operator but no contractive conditions as in earlier works. This way expand the applicability of this method. Here we introduce a new type of majorizing sequences instead of usual majorizing sequences and recurrence relations. Finally the paper will be concluded with numerical examples and a favorable comparison with known results.
