Accurate long-term integration of dynamical systems. (English) Zbl 0837.65071
Properties concerning the global error of the integration performed over a very long time of a system of differential equations by symplectic or symmetric methods are studied. It is shown that the error growth – for problems with periodic solution and for integrable systems using symplectic or symmetric methods – is only linear in \(t_n\), compared to a quadratic error growth in the general case. A variable stepsize implementation for symmetric collocation methods is also explained.
