 Iterative methods -- CFD-Wiki, the free CFD reference
Iterative methods, unlike direct methods, generate a sequence of approximate solutions to the system that (hopefully) converges to the exact solution.
The convergence of such iterative methods can be investigated using the Fixed point theorem.
When during the iterations B and c changes during the iterations, the method is called Nonstationary Iterative Method.

The attraction basins of the Newton and Halley methods.
The quasi-Halley method is a method of order 2.41, which uses the same information as Newton's method (except for an additional point z- and derivative f'(z-) at the initial iteration), see Ref.
The global behavior of the Newton method is chaotic: the (common) boundary of the different basins is a Julia set of intricate shape, see Fig.

  The Dispatch - Serving the Lexington, NC - News   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Iterative methods are useful for problems involving a large number of variables (sometimes of the order of millions), where direct methods would be prohibitively expensive and in some cases impossible even with the best available computing power.
Stationary iterative methods solve a linear system with an operator approximating the original one; and based on a measurement of the error (the residual), form a correction equation for which this process is repeated.
The approximating operator that appears in stationary iterative methods can also be incorporated in Krylov subspace methods such as GMRES (alternatively, preconditioned Krylov methods can be considered as accelerations of stationary iterative methods), where they become transformations of the original operator to a presumably better conditioned one.

 First Steps in Numerical Analysis
Recall that an iterative method starts with an approximate solution, and uses it by means of a recurrence formula to provide another approximate solution; by repeatedly applying the formula, a sequence of solutions is obtained which (under suitable conditions) converges to the exact solution.
Iterative methods have the advantages of simplicity of operation and ease of implementation on computers, and they are relatively insensitive to propagation of errors; they would be used in preference to direct methods for solving linear systems involving several hundred variables, particularly, if many of the coefficients were zero.
As in the above example, the Gauss-Seidel method may quickly lead to a solution very close to the exact one; on the other hand, it may converge too slowly to be of practical use, or it may produce a sequence which diverges from the exact solution.

 Iterative Image Restoration
In comparison with non-iterative methods iterative procedures offer the advantage that no matrix inverses need to be implemented, and that additional deterministic constraints can be incorporated into the solution algorithms.
Additional advantages of using iterative optimization algorithms are that they allow for more flexible, possible more complex but certainly improved formulation of the solution to the identification and restoration problem.
As opposite to non-iterative methods, such as the recursive or frequency domain filters, iterative schemes can also handle problems, which do not have an explicit analytical solution, but have been formulated as the optimization of a nonlinear and/or spatially variant objective function.

 Computational Methods
In order to apply fictitious domain methods to the problem of simulating the flow of a fluid with free particles (i.e., obstacles with unprescribed motion), the hydrodynamic forces and torques exerted by the fluid on the particles must be accurately evaluated.
The efficient handling of multiple right-hand sides proves to be a challenge to most iterative methods because one of their main advantages is that not much information needs to be stored and therefore very little information is saved from the solution of one system which can be reused for the solution of subsequent systems.
Consider using the Lanczos method for solving the linear systems since it is well known that the conjugate gradient method is mathematically equivalent to the Lanczos method.

The main purpose of this paper is to give a systematic introduction to a number of iterative methods for symmetric positive definite problems.
Based on results and ideas from various existing works on iterative methods, a unified theory for a diverse group of iterative algorithms, such as Jacobi and Gauss-Seidel iterations, diagonal preconditioning, domain decomposition methods, multigrid methods, multilevel nodal basis preconditioners and hierarchical basis methods, is presented.
For example, subspaces arising from the domain decomposition method are associated with subdomains whereas with the multigrid method subspaces are provided by multiple "coarser" grids.

 Jacobi-type iterative methods   (Site not responding. Last check: )
The method works by repeated application of orthogonal Jacobi rotations, which, depending on the order of them, bring the matrix more or less quickly to diagonal form.
The original method used by Jacobi in 1846 applied the rotations to zero the largest non-zero off-diagonal element, but on a computer a re-designed pattern is easier.
A one-sided method is likely to be better for this reason.

 java.net: Agile Legacies: Using Iterative Methods to Import Legacy Data
Nevertheless, despite the benefits of an iterative development cycle, this approach is often not applied to the process of importing legacy data.
In iterative development, software is designed, built, and tested incrementally, in a series of "iterations." Each iteration aims to implement a working version of the application with a subset of the requirements.
Iterative development has an important place in use-case-driven, architecture-centric approaches such as the Rational Unified Process (RUP), and in the more lightweight methodologies of the Agile family such as XP (Extreme Programming), Feature-Driven Development, SCRUM, DDSM, and others.

 methods - eigenfactor.org - ranking and mapping scientific journals
By this approach, journals are considered to be influential if they are cited often by other influential journals.
Iterative ranking schemes of this type, known as eigenvector centrality methods [3], are notoriously sensitive to “dangling nodes” and “dangling clusters”: nodes or groups of nodes which link seldom if at all to other parts of the network.
The modified eigenvector centrality algorithm used to rank journals at Eigenfactor.org expands upon a thirty-year tradition of using iterative methods to quantify the influence of scholarly publications.

Iterative methods for the solution of linear and nonlinear systems of equations are commonly used in large scientific computations because of their relative efficiency for problems of large size.
These methods have been very successful, but as both the depth of the memory hierarchies within each compute node and the total number of compute nodes increases, it becomes increasingly difficult to maintain high levels of overall performance.
