Abstract : The aim of this paper is to extend the applicability of Gauss-Newton method for solving underdetermined nonlinear least squares problems in cases not covered before. The novelty of the paper is the introduction of a restricted convergence domain. We find a more precise location where the Gauss-Newton iterates lie than in earlier studies. Consequently the Lipschitz constants are at least as small as the ones used before. This way and under the same computational cost, we extend the local as well the semilocal convergence of Gauss-Newton method. The new developmentes are obtained under the same computational cost as in earlier studies, since the new Lipschitz constants are special cases of the constants used before. Numerical examples further justify the theoretical results.
