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. 
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.
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
Non-linear stability of a general class of differential equation methods
For a class of methods sufficiently general as to include linear multistep and Runge-Kutta methods as special cases, a concept known as algebraic stability is defined, based on a non-linear test problem, which enables estimates of error growth to be provided.
The equivalence ofB-stability andA-stability
It is shown to what extent the linear (A-st stability) and non-linear (G-stability) stability concepts are equivalent for multistep methods in their one-leg formulation for Runge-Kutta methods.

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
