We propose a new class of method for solving nonlinear systems of equations, which, among other things, has four nice features: (i) it is inspired by the mathematical property of damped oscillators, (ii) it can be regarded as a simple extension to the Newton-Raphson (NR) method, (iii) it has the same local convergence as the NR method does, (iv) it has a significantly wider convergence region or the global convergence than that of the NR method. In this article, we present the evidence of these properties, applying our new method to some examples and comparing it with the NR method.
