## Abstract:

A new algorithm for solving systems of nonlinear equations where the Jacobian is known to be sparse is shown to converge locally if a sufficiently good initial estimate of the solution is available and if the Jacobian satisfies a Lipschitz condition. The results of numerical experiments are quoted in which systems of up to 600 equations have been solved by the method.## References
