Revisionist integral deferred correction with adaptive step-size control

Andrew J. Christlieb, Colin B. Macdonald, Benjamin W. Ong and Raymond J. Spiteri

Vol. 10 (2015), No. 1, 1–25

Adaptive step-size control is a critical feature for the robust and efficient numerical solution of initial-value problems in ordinary differential equations. In this paper, we show that adaptive step-size control can be incorporated within a family of parallel time integrators known as revisionist integral deferred correction (RIDC) methods. The RIDC framework allows for various strategies to implement step-size control, and we report results from exploring a few of them.
