Thus, the title f(0) = 0 is correct, the algorithm only converges to a root (yeah, with order 3 and only one function evaluation per iteration) if such root is zero. We are talking about two different methods here. The paper on sapub.org shows a current (2016) paper by R. Thukral, quoting an older paper of the same author from 2008. Here equation [20] is the 2008 Thukral formula (with an error). This formula works for nonzero roots. Because this older Thukral formula [20] has an error Namir does not get the expected results. After a correction (cf. the original source, i.e. the 2008 Thukral paper) the formula works fine and performs similar to the other posted thirdorder methods, sometimes even better. Dieter
