## Details

The linear multistep methods (LMMs) described in this Demonstration are constructed using the maximal order approach. The name, recursion relation, order, local truncation error and locus of the boundary of the region of absolute stability for each method are presented. The locus boundary technique was used to obtain the locus of the boundary of the region of absolute stability of the methods.

Control labels:

"step number"—the step number of the LMM to be constructed.

"method"—name of the method used.

The present Demonstration is an update of Linear Multistep Methods for First-Order ODEs.
