A Semilocal Convergence of a Secant–Type Method for Solving Generalized Equations

  • Said Hilout
  • Alain Piétrus


In this paper we present a study of the existence and the convergence of a secant–type method for solving abstract generalized equations in Banach spaces. With different assumptions for divided differences, we obtain a procedure that have superlinear convergence. This study follows the recent results of semilocal convergence related to the resolution of nonlinear equations (see [11])
