Workshop on Iterative Methods for Nonlinear Equations

IMNE 2008


in the framework of

10th International Symposium on
Symbolic and Numeric Algorithms for Scientific Computing
Timisoara, Romania
September 26 - 29, 2008

Workshop description

The workshop is focused both on computational aspects and qualitative properties of iterative methods for nonlinear equations. The possibilities of parallel implementation and the  efficiency of the algorithms (soundness, computation complexity, rate of convergence, etc.) for large and sparse nonlinear equations in finite dimensional spaces is of special interest. Papers concerning the Mann and Ishikawa iteration and their applications to convex feasibility problems are also welcome.

IMNE'08 invites authors to submit their original and unpublished work that demonstrate current research in all areas related with iterative methods for nonlinear equations. Submitted papers have to be original, containing new and interesting results.


Suggested topics for papers include, but are not limited to, the following:

  -Newton and quasi-Newton methods,
  -Methods with high convergence rate,
  -Inexact Newton method and forcing factor,
  -Nonlinear conjugate gradient iteration,
  -Mann and Ishikawa iteration,
  -Algorithms for polynomial equations,
  -Asynchronous algorithms,
  -Precondition for nonlinear systems,
  -Domains of convergence.

Submission of papers:

Papers of up to 8 pages edited using the IEEE conference style  must be submitted electronically to

All papers will be peer  reviewed by at least two or more independent referees of the program  committee of IMNE08 and accepted on the basis of their scientific merit and relevance to the Workshop topics. The papers accepted for presentation will be published in a locally edited booklet.

The revised versions of papers presented at the symposium will be published in a post-proceedings edited  by Conference Publishing Service (CSP)).
