Rosenbrock methods for differential-algebraic systems with solution-dependent singular matrix multiplying the derivative

  • Ch. Lubich
  • M. Roche


We study convergence and order conditions of Rosenbrock type methods applied to differential-algebraic systems of the formB(y)y′=a(y), with singular matrixB. An embedded pair of methods of order 3(2) is constructed.

Rosenbrock-Verfahren für differentiell-algebraische Systeme mit lösungsabhängigem, singulärem Faktor der Ableitung


Wir studieren Konvergenz und Ordnungsbedingungen von Rosenbrock-Verfahren bei deren Anwendung auf differentiell-algebraische Systeme der FormB(y)y′=a(y) mit singulärer MatrixB und konstruieren ein Paar von eingebetteten Verfahren der Ordnungen 3(2).
