A class of implicit Runge-Kutta methods is shown to possess a stability property which is a natural extension of the notion ofA-stability for non-linear systems. 
Stability Criteria for Implicit Runge–Kutta Methods
A comparison is made of two stability criteria. The first is a modification to nonautonomous problems of A-stability and the second is a similar modification of B-stability. It is shown that under
High order algebraically stable Runge-Kutta methods
An analysis is made of the family ofs-stage Runge-Kutta methods of order 2s—2 or more which possesses this property.
On theA-stability of implicit Runge-Kutta processes
A new technique to calculate the characteristic functions and to examine theA-stability of implicit Runge-Kutta processes is presented. This technique is based on a direct algebraic approach and an
A note onB-stability of Runge-Kutta methods
It is proved that for any irreducible Runge-Kutta method these three stability concepts are equivalent.
A necessary condition forB-stability
A necessary condition forB-stability is derived. Then it is shown that the Runge-Kutta methods of Lobatto type IIIA and IIIB and some other methods are notB-stable.
Nonlinear stability of multistep multiderivative methods
In this paper we examine nonlinear stability of multistep multiderivative methods for initial value problems of a class K(, in a Banach space. Stability criteria are established which extend results

Stability of Runge-Kutta methods for stiff ordinary differential equations
This work analyzes the integration of initial value problems for stiff systems of ordinary differential equations by Runge–Kutta methods. The author uses the characterization of stiff initial value


A-stable Runge-Kutta processes
The concept of strongA-stability is defined. A class of stronglyA-stable Runge-Kutta processes is introduced. It is also noted that several classes of implicit Runge-Kutta processes defined by Ehle
