Dynamics of a family of thirdorder iterative methods that do not require

Summary: Dynamics of a family of third­order
iterative methods that do not require
using second derivatives
The purpose of this article is to present results that amount to a de-
scription of the conjugacy classes of three third­order root­finding iterative
methods that do not require the use of second derivatives for their formu-
lation, for complex polynomials of degrees two, three and four. For degrees
two and three, a full description of the conjugacy classes is accomplished, in
each case, by a one­parameter family of polynomials. This is done in such a
way that, when one applies one of these three root­finding iterative methods
to the elements of these parametrized families, a family of iterative methods
is obtained, in such a way that its dynamics represents, up to conjugacy,
the dynamics of the corresponding iterative root­finding method applied to
any complex polynomial having the same degree. For degree four, analogous
partial results are obtained.
Key Words. Iterative methods, dynamics, rational maps, conjugacy
