Description

Half-explicit Runge-Kutta methods for differential-algebraic problems of index 2 are investigated. It is shown how the arising order conditions can be solved and a particular method of order 4 is constructed. In addition, this paper simplifies the known convergence theory for such methods and demonstrates by numerical experiments their excellent properties when applied to constrained multibody systems.
