A usual fixed point problem has the form $x_{k+1}=f(x_k)$, and you can efficiently solve it by finding the root to $f(x)x$. What if I now have several dependent inputs $x_{k+1}=f(x_k, y_k)$, and $y_k=g(x_{k1}, y_{k1})$. I can certainly run many iterations until $f$ converges (assume a fixed point exists), but is there a more clever algorithm for this?

$\begingroup$ If you can find a root of $(x,y)\mapsto (xf(x,y), yg(x,y))$, say, by the Newton method, then yes. What's the difference? $\endgroup$– fedjaAug 21, 2020 at 18:04

$\begingroup$ @fedja, thanks for the comment. Actually this is right, but I guess my real question was whether there is a way to decouple this, especially when the input has very large dimensions. That should probably be a new post. $\endgroup$– user3799934Aug 28, 2020 at 19:41
