This kind of form of a third sub-step iteration is more useful in the error analysis as well as in the study of dynamics via basins of attraction. One way of finding such a third sub-step iteration with a feasible error corrector is to apply the Inverse Function Theorem [1] to (2.3).

To obtain basins of attraction, we take four test examples which are given as [p.sub.3](x) = [x.sup.3] - 1, [p.sub.4](x) = [x.sup.4] - 10[chi square] + 9, [p.sub.5](x) = [x.sup.5] - 1, and [p.sub.7](x) = [x.sup.7] - 1.
Furthermore, we can conclude that the basins of attraction S(-1) and S(1) in the case of operator B are the half-planes on either side in relation to the line z = 0 (the imaginary axis).
