Order of the Runge-Kutta method and evolution of the stability region. (English) Zbl 1450.65069

Summary: In this article, we demonstrate through specific examples that the evolution of the size of the absolute stability regions of Runge-Kutta methods for ordinary differential equation does not depend on the order of methods.
