Benchmarking Sti ODE Solvers for AtmosphericChemistry Problems II : Rosenbrock SolversA

  title={Benchmarking Sti ODE Solvers for AtmosphericChemistry Problems II : Rosenbrock SolversA},
  author={J. Blom},
In the numerical simulation of atmospheric transport-chemistry processes, a major task is the integration of the stii systems of ordinary diierential equations describing the chemical transformations. It is therefore of interest to systematically search for stii solvers which can be identiied as close to optimal for atmospheric applications. In this paper we continue our investigation from (Sandu et al., 1996a) and compare eight solvers on a set of seven box-models used in present day models…
