Stability Analysis for Explicit RK Methods
The first analysis of instability phenomena and step size restrictions for hyperbolic equations was made in the famous paper of Courant, Friedrichs & Lewy (1928). Later, many authors undertook a stability analysis, very often independently, in order to explain the phenomena encountered in the foregoing section. An early and beautiful paper on this subject is Guillou & Lago (1961).
