Analysis of the linearly implicit mid-point rule for differential-algebraic equations

Claus Schneider


The error of the linearly implicit mid–point rule after $2m+1$ steps is expanded in powers of $m^2$. We prove that the well-known expansion for ordinary differential equations (an expansion in negative powers of $m^2$) is perturbed by additional terms with non-negative powers of $m^2$ for semi–explicit differential–algebraic equations of index one. Hence, extrapolation in $m^{-2}$ will be of limited value only. The complete expansion shows these limits and, furthermore, can be used to derive an order 8 method of Rosenbrock type.
