Abstract: In this paper, we show how a second-order accurate two-step method used in the numerical computation of hydrodynamic flows may be derived directly from the integral conservation laws. A necessary and sufficient condition for stability for the linearized equations is derived for the three-dimensional Cartesian coordinate case.
