Welcome to AMS Open Math Notes, a repository of freely downloadable mathematical works hosted by the American Mathematical Society as a service to researchers, faculty and students. Open Math Notes includes:
Visitors are encouraged to download and use any of these materials as teaching and research aids, and to send constructive comments and suggestions to the authors.
We study explicit and implicit methods for initial value problems.
For general Runge-Kutta methods, Butcher's theory of rooted trees
is presented in detail, proving Butcher's theorem on conditions for high orders of consistency and convergence. Further topics include
collocation methods, stability theory, stiff equations, asymptotic error expansions, extrapolation methods, and stepsize control.
