Abstract


This article presented the direct block predictor-corrector method for solving general higher order initial value problems of ordinary differential equation. Method of collocation and interpolation of power series approximate solution was used to derive a continuous linear multistep method. Block method was later used to generate the non overlapping solution at selected grid points. The method developed, is self starting, consistent, symmetric, zero-stable and convergent. The performance of the new block method was tested with some fourth order initial value problems and it was found to compare favorably with the existing methods.
