Unformatted text preview: g c = c1 c2 : : : cs]T , we may write (3.2.5c) with l = 2 in the form bT c = 1=2. The vector form of (3.2.5b) is Al = c. Thus, bT Al = 1=2, which is the same as (3.2.7) with k = 2. Beyond k = 2, the order conditions (3.2.5c) and (3.2.7) are independent. Although conditions (3.2.5) and (3.2.7) are only necessary for a method to be of order p, they are su cient in many cases. The actual number of conditions for a Runge-Kutta method of order p are presented in Table 3.2.2 16]. These results assume that (3.2.5b) has been satis ed.

The necessary and su cient conditions for a Runge-Kutta method (3.2.3) to be of second order are (3.2.5c), l = 1 2, and (3.2.7), k = 2. If (3.2.5b) is satis ed then (3.2.5), k = 1 2, are necessary and su cient for second-order accuracy. Proof. We require numerous Taylor's series expansions. To be...
