Comparing stability properties of three methods in DAEs or ODEs with invariants

  • Anders Barrlund


Three approaches for solving ODEs with invariants or DAEs are the constrained least squares method, the coordinate projection method and the derivative projection method. The stability properties of these three methods are compared for linear ODEs with linear invariants. There exist examples where each of the three approaches is to prefer.
