We propose to give a description and an analysis of the principal modern methods used in the numerical solution of the Cauchy problem. We have sought both to give a precise mathematical context for the problem and its solution methods and to avoid the overly technical aspects of the material. We limit ourselves to describing the algorithms only in a general form, and the proofs call upon simple mathematical tools: error bounds, convergence results, stability results, etc. This text is addressed to undergraduate and graduate students and to engineers, economists and others who use numerical analysis of differential equations.
