Abstract: The initial-boundary value problem for a linear parabolic equation in an infinite cylinder under the Dirichlet boundary condition is solved by applying the finite element discretization in the space dimension and $ {A_0}$-stable multistep discretizations in time. No restriction on the ratio of the time and space increments is imposed. The methods are analyzed and bounds for the discretization error in the $ {L_2}$-norm are given.
