Basic intervals between metrizable topologies]{Basic intervals in the partial order of metrizable topologies

D. W. McIntyre and W.S. Watson


This paper surveys a number of aspects of numerical methods for ordinary differential equations. The discussion includes the method of Euler and introduces Runge-Kutta methods and linear multistep methods as generalizations of Euler. Stability considerations arising from stiffness lead to a discussion of implicit methods and implementation issues. To the extent possible within this short survey, numerical methods are looked at in the context of problems arising in practical applications.
