In the present paper some Newton-like iteration methods are developed to enclose solutions of nonlinear operator equations
of the kindF(x)=0. HereF maps a certain subset of a partially ordered vector space into another partially ordered vector space. The obtained results
are proved without any special properties of the orderings by taking use of a new kind of a generalized divided difference
operator, so that they even hold for nonconvex operators. Furthermore a method for constructing including starting points
is presented and two examples are given.
Let expX be the power set of a non-empty set X. A function γ: expX→expX is said to be monotonic iff A⫅B⫅X implies γA⫅γB. Császár  investigated relations between the monotonic functions. The purpose of the paper is to investigate some results concerning particular monotonic functions.
