We study local convergence of generalized Newton methods for both equations and inclusions by using known and new approximations and regularity properties at the solution. Including Kantorovich-type settings, our goal are statements about all (not only some) Newton sequences with appropriate initial points. Our basic tools are results of Klatte-Kummer (2002) and Kummer (1988, 1995), … Read more
