Abstract: New techniques for numerically solving systems of firstorder ordinary differential equations are obtained by finding local Galerkin approximations on each subinterval of a given mesh. Different classes of methods correspond to different quadrature rules used to evaluate the innerproducts involved. At each step, a polynomial of degree is constructed and the arcs are joined together continuously, but not smoothly, to form a piecewise polynomial of degree and class . If the point quadrature rule used for the innerproducts is of order , then the Galerkin method is of order at the mesh points. In between the mesh points, the th derivatives have accuracy of order , for and for .
