If the one-step method satis es the consistency condition (3.4.3), then z(t) = y(t). Thus, yn converges to y(tn), n 0. This establishes su ciency of the consistency condition for convergence. 41 In order to show that consistency is necessary for convergence, assume that the onestep method (3.4.1a) converges to the solution of the IVP...
