Abstract: Using affine invariant terms, we give a local convergence analysis of difference Newton-like methods for solving the nonlinear equation $ F(x) = 0$. The convergence conditions are weaker than those standardly required for methods of this class. The technique and results are valid for all currently known difference Newton-like methods which require evaluation of all components of F at the same point. Radius of convergence and rate of convergence results for particular difference Newton-like methods may easily be derived from the results reported here.
