Accuracy, Efficiency and Choice

  • Dieter Britz


In this chapter, we compare only those methods most likely to be used, out of all the methods shown in previous chapters, using abbreviations for them:
  • EX: traditional explicit, using points;

  • BOX: Feldberg’s method;

  • RKx: x-order Runge-Kutta integration;

  • CN: Crank-Nicolson without the implicit boundary algorithm;

  • ICN: Crank-Nicolson with the implicit boundary algorithm;

  • UNEQ: unequal intervals (coupled with CN or ICN).

These are considered the most accessible methods, although there are much more modern techniques that compare favourably (see Chapt. 5).
