%T Direct Block Backward Differentiation Formulas for Solving Second Order Ordinary Differential Equations

%X In this paper, a direct method based on variable step
size Block Backward Differentiation Formula which is referred as
BBDF2 for solving second order Ordinary Differential Equations
(ODEs) is developed. The advantages of the BBDF2 method over the
corresponding sequential variable step variable order Backward
Differentiation Formula (BDFVS) when used to solve the same
problem as a first order system are pointed out. Numerical results are
given to validate the method.
