Abstract : In this paper, a class of efficient iterative methods with increasing order of convergence for solving systems of nonlinear equations is developed and analyzed. The methodology uses well-known third-order Potra–Pták iteration in the first step and Newton-like iterations in the subsequent steps. Novelty of the methods is the increase in convergence order by an amount three per step at the cost of only one additional function evaluation. In addition, the algorithm uses a single inverse operator in each iteration, which makes it computationally more efficient and attractive. Local convergence is studied in the more general setting of a Banach space under suitable assumptions. Theoretical results of convergence and computational efficiency are verified through numerical experimentation. Comparison of numerical results indicates that the developed algorithms outperform the other similar algorithms available in the literature, particularly when applied to solve the large systems of equations. The basins of attraction of some of the existing methods along with the proposed method are given to exhibit their performance.
