Abstract: In this paper we give a description and analysis of a class of matricial difference schemes. This class of schemes is based in part on a generalization of the feature of classical numerical methods of being characterized by approximations at a single point in the complex plane. The schemes introduced here are effective for integrating stiff systems.
