Abstract: To be useful for extremely stiff systems of ordinary differential equations, *A*-stability and a maximally damped condition as (i.e., *L*-stability) are desirable. This paper investigates the condition of *L*-stability for a class of Runge-Kutta methods known as the Rosenbrock procedure. This procedure requires only one computation of a Jacobian matrix per step of integration, *L*-stable Rosenbrock methods up to order four are derived.
