Abstract: The region of absolute stability of multistep multiderivative methods is studied in a neighborhood of the origin. This leads to a necessary condition for A-stability. For methods where $ \rho (\zeta )/(\zeta - 1)$ has no roots of modulus 1 this condition can be checked very easily. For Hermite interpolatory and Adams type methods a necessary condition for A-stability is found which depends only on the error order and the number of derivatives used at $ ({x_{n + k}},{y_{n + k}})$.
