Nonlinear stability of natural Runge-Kutta methods for neutral delay differential equations. (English) Zbl 1018.65101
T. Koto [Japan J. Ind. Appl. Math. 14, No. 1, 111-123 (1997; Zbl 0887.65093)] adapted natural Runge-Kutta methods to systems of nonlinear neutral delay differential equations and analyzed their asymptotic stability in \(\mathbb{R}^d\), using a discrete Lyapunov functional. In the present paper an alternative approach extends this analysis to systems of the form \[ {d\over dt} [y(t)- Ny(t- \tau)]= f(t, y(t), y(t-\tau)),\quad t\geq 0\;(\tau> 0),\tag{1} \] where \(N\in\mathbb{C}^{d\times d}\) is a constant (complex) matrix with \(\|N\|< 1\). It is shown that a natural Runge-Kutta method for (1) based on a \((k,l)\)-algebraically stable Runge-Kutta method for ordinary differential equations inherits, under certain conditions, the asymptotic stability properties of the original method.
