quasilinearization; monotone iterations; superlinear convergence
The method of quasilinearization is a well-known technique for obtaining approximate solutions of nonlinear differential equations. In this paper we apply this technique to functional differential problems. It is shown that linear iterations converge to the unique solution and this convergence is superlinear.
