NITSOL: A Newton Iterative Solver for Nonlinear Systems describes an algorithm for solving nonlinear systems. Michael Pernice and Homer F. Walker, the authors of the paper NITSOL , implemented this algorithm in FORTRAN. The goal of the project has been to use the modern and robust language MATLAB to implement the NITSOL algorithm. In this paper, the main mathematical and algorithmic background for understanding NITSOL are described, and a user guide is included outlining how to use the MATLAB implementation of NITSOL. A nonlinear system example problem, the 2D Bratu problem, and the solution obtained by MATLAB NITSOL's are also included.
