system of ordinary differential equations; initial value problem; explicit Runge-Kutta method; Richardson extrapolation; convergence acceleration
Runge-Kutta methods are widely used in the solution of systems of ordinary differential equations. Richardson extrapolation is an efficient tool to enhance the accuracy of time integration schemes. In this paper we investigate the convergence of the combination of any explicit Runge-Kutta method with active Richardson extrapolation and show that the obtained numerical solution converges under rather natural conditions.
