# 5.5.4. Modified Newton Algorithm¶

algorithm('ModifiedNewton', secant=False, initial=False)

Create a ModifiedNewton algorithm. The difference to Newton is that the tangent at the initial guess is used in the iterations, instead of the current tangent.

 secant (bool) Flag to indicate to use secant stiffness. (optional) initial (bool) Flag to indicate to use initial stiffness.(optional)
