Abstract: We construct and analyze combinations of rational implicit and explicit multistep methods for nonlinear parabolic equations. The resulting schemes are linearly implicit and include as particular cases implicit-explicit multistep schemes as well as the combination of implicit Runge-Kutta schemes and extrapolation. An optimal condition for the stability constant is derived under which the schemes are locally stable. We establish optimal order error estimates.
