Relaxation Runge--Kutta Methods: Conservation and Stability for Inner-Product Norms

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

50 Scopus citations


We further develop a simple modification of Runge--Kutta methods that guarantees conservation or stability with respect to any inner-product norm. The modified methods can be explicit and retain the accuracy and stability properties of the unmodified Runge--Kutta method. We study the properties of the modified methods and show their effectiveness through numerical examples, including application to entropy-stability for first-order hyperbolic PDEs.
