Runge-Kutta Processes with Exact Principal Error Equations

Lookup NU author(s): Dr Kenneth Wright



The global error estimation process introduced by HJ Stetter and reviewed with practical improvements by L Dalle Rive and F Pasciutti is discussed with reference to explicit Runge-Kutta methods and further modifications are suggested. It is demonstrated that this process can be unsatisfactory when applied to a problem which suffers from inherent instability.
