Original Paper


The study of the dynamical behaviour of the operators defined by iterative methods help us to know more deeply the regions where these methods have a good performance. In this paper, we follow the dynamical study of a multipoint variant of the known Chebyshev-Halley’s family, showing the existence of attractive periodic orbits of period 2 for some values of the parameter.
