Natural Runge-Kutta and projection methods

  • Marino Zennaro


Recently the author defined the class of natural Runge-Kutta methods and observed that it includes all the collocation methods. The present paper is devoted to a complete characterization of this class and it is shown that it coincides with the class of the projection methods in some polynomial spaces.
