Report on Computing Optimal RungeKutta Methods
Report no. MI200507, Mathematical Institute, Leiden University (2005), written jointly with Luca Ferracina: "Computing optimal monotonicitypreserving RungeKutta methods". There is overlap between Report no. MI 200507 and the paper, written jointly with Luca Ferracina, "Strong stability of singlydiagonallyimplicit RungeKutta methods" (APNUM, 58 (2008) 16751686). But, the report contains material on computing optimal RungeKutta methods which has not been included in the paper.
