Abstract:

A numerical integration method, termed the K method, has been developed within the Concepts Analysis Laboratory for the integration of about fifty stiff ordinary differential equations. This method is described and, by the use of several benchmark sets of ordinary differential equations, comparisons are made with other methods that have been described in the open literature. Instructions are given on the use of the K method, and a complete listing of the method is included.
