This paper proposes a new Newton-like method which defines new iterates using a linear system with the same coefficient matrix in each iterate, while the correction is performed on the right-hand-side vector of the Newton system. In this way a method is obtained which is less costly than the Newton method and faster than the fixed Newton method. Local convergence is proved for nonsingular systems. The influence of the relaxation parameter is analyzed and explicit formulae for the selection of an optimal parameter are presented. Relevant numerical examples are used to demonstrate the advantages of the proposed method.
