Abstract: A matrix representation of iterative methods is presented which includes almost all those based on polynomial methods. A simple lemma and corollaries are established which show that the order of convergence of the iteration is the spectral radius of the matrix representation. A number of old and new methods, particularly those adapted to parallel computation, are analyzed using this representation.
