N2 - A parallel block method based on Backward
Differentiation Formulas (BDF) is developed for the parallel solution
of stiff Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs). Most common
methods for solving stiff systems of ODEs are based on implicit
formulae and solved using Newton iteration which requires repeated
solution of systems of linear equations with coefficient matrix, I -
hβJ . Here, J is the Jacobian matrix of the problem. In this paper,
the matrix operations is paralleled in order to reduce the cost of the
iterations. Numerical results are given to compare the speedup and
efficiency of parallel algorithm and that of sequential algorithm.
