An eighth-order family of optimal multiple root finders and its dynamics

There is a very small number of higher-order iteration functions for multiple zeros whose order of convergence is greater than four. Some scholars have tried to propose optimal eighth-order methods for multiple zeros. But, unfortunately, they did not get success in this direction and attained only sixth-order convergence. So, as far as we know, there is not a single optimal eighth-order iteration function in the available literature that will work for multiple zeros. Motivated and inspired by this fact, we present an optimal eighth-order iteration function for multiple zeros. An extensive convergence study is discussed in order to demonstrate the optimal eighth-order convergence of the proposed scheme. In addition, we also demonstrate the applicability of our proposed scheme on real-life problems and illustrate that the proposed methods are more efficient among the available multiple root finding techniques. Finally, dynamical study of the proposed schemes also confirms the theoretical results.
