Original Paper


Many problems related to gas dynamics, heat transfer or chemical reactions are modeled by means of partial differential equations that usually are solved by using approximation techniques. When they are transformed in nonlinear systems of equations via a discretization process, this system is big-sized and high-order iterative methods are specially useful. In this paper, we construct a new family of parametric iterative methods with arbitrary even order, based on the extension of Ostrowski’ and Chun’s methods for solving nonlinear systems. Some elements of the proposed class are known methods meanwhile others are new schemes with good properties. Some numerical tests confirm the theoretical results and allow us to compare the numerical results obtained by applying new methods and known ones on academical examples. In addition, we apply one of our methods for approximating the solution of a heat conduction problem described by a parabolic partial differential equation.
