Abstract: In many iterative schemes, the precision of each step depends on the computational effort spent on that step. A method of specifying a suitable amount of computation at each step is described. The approach is adaptive and aimed at minimizing the overall computational cost subject to attaining a final iterate that satisfies a suitable error criterion. General and particular cost functions are considered, and a numerical example is given.
