Abstract : We generalize a family of optimal eighth order weighted-Newton methods to Banach spaces and study their local convergence. In a previous study, the Taylor expansion of higher order derivatives is employed which may not exist or may be very expensive to compute. However, the hypotheses of the present study are based on the first Fréchet-derivative only, thereby the application of methods is expanded. New analysis also provides the radius of convergence, error bounds and estimates on the uniqueness of the solution. Such estimates are not provided in the approaches that use Taylor expansions of derivatives of higher order. Moreover, the order of convergence for the methods is verified by using computational order of convergence or approximate computational order of convergence without using higher order derivatives. Numerical examples are provided to verify the theoretical results and to show the good convergence behavior.
