Economical Global Error Estimation

  • Hans J. Stetter
Part of the The IBM Research Symposia Series book series (IRSS)


This paper has no immediate relation to stiff differential equations; in fact, modifications which may be necessary to adapt some of the following techniques to badly stiff systems have not been elaborated. The main feature of the paper is the analysis of a new technique for global error estimation [Zadunaisky (1970)] which should be of genuine interest to everybody concerned with the numerical solution of differential equations.
