Abstract: A new implicit finite-difference scheme for viscous flows is presented. The scheme is based on Simpson's rule and two-point Hermite interpolation, is uniformly accurate to fourth order in time and space, and is unconditionally stable according to a Fourier stability analysis. Numerical solutions of Burger's equation are presented to illustrate the order and accuracy of the scheme.
