Determination of the Order and the Error Constant of an Implicit Linear-Four Step Method
The aim of this work is to determine the order and the error constant of an implicit linear-four step method namely “The Quade’s method”. From the results generated, It is observed that the method is of order six and the error constant is obtained as . The Local Truncation Error (LTE) of the general implicit linear four-step is obtained.
