### Local truncation error of given implicit 1-step scheme

I'm given the 1-step implicit scheme $$y_{n+1} = y_n + \frac{h}{6}[4f(t_n, y_n) + 2f(t_{n+1}, y_{n+1}) + hf'(t_n, y_n)],$$ where $y'(t) = f(t, y)$, and I'm seeking the scheme's local truncation error. ...

### First-order modified Patankar–Euler scheme (MPE)

Is the first-order Modified Patankar–Euler scheme (MPE) an implicit or explicit method? Is there an open-source code implementing the MPE scheme for a system of ODEs?

### What is the difference between implicit FEM and explicit FEM?

What is the difference between explicit FEM and implicit FEM exactly? According to the post here, it seems that the only difference is whether implicit or explicit time integration is used. As I ...

### Stability of forward euler method

I am trying to understand the stability of the forward Euler method. I read there's a model problem to see the stability. $$y'(t) = \lambda y(t) \qquad t \in (0, \infty)$$ $$y(0) = 1$$ then the book ...

### Runge-Kutta and Reusing Datapoints

I am trying to implement the fourth order Runge-Kutta method for solving a first order ODE in Python i.e. $\frac{dy}{dx} = f(x,y)$. I understand how the method works, but am trying to write an ...

### How can I reduce the communication bottleneck of a parallel explicit finite difference scheme?

Suppose i was trying to solve a parabolic PDE (heat equation) on a rectangular domain using an explicit finite difference scheme. I am storing my solution vector in a matrix form (because it closely ...
