An efficient family of two-point derivative free methods with memory for solving nonlinear equations is presented. It is proved that the convergence order of the proposed family is increased from 4 to at least 2 + √ 6 ≈ 4.45, 5, 1 2 5 + √ 33 ≈ 5.37 and 6, depending on the accelerating technique. The increase of convergence order is attained using a suitable accelerating technique by varying a free parameter in each iteration. The improvement of convergence rate is achieved without any

Moreover, the presented methods are more efficient than all existing methods known in literature in the class of two-point methods and three-point methods of optimal order eight. Numerical examples and the comparison with the existing two-point methods are included to confirm theoretical results and high computational efficiency. 2010 Mathematics Subject Classification. 65H05.
