Main Article Content
In this paper, we mainly study the numerical algorithms for simple root of nonlinear equations based on Newton-Raphson method. Two modified Newton-Raphson methods for solving nonlinear equations are suggested. Both of the methods are free from second derivatives. Numerical examples are made to show the performance of the presented methods, and to compare with other ones. The numerical results illustrate that the proposed methods are more efficient and performs better than Newton-Raphson method.
