Corrigendum to “Derivation of Diagonally Implicit Block Backward Differentiation Formulas for Solving Stiff Initial Value Problems”
In the article titled “Derivation of Diagonally Implicit Block Backward Differentiation Formulas for Solving Stiff Initial Value Problems,” [1] there are misreported information and typing errors that are corrected as follows.
In the fourth paragraph of the “Introduction” section, the sentence “The following equations represent the formulas of fully implicit 2point block backward differentiation formulas of order three (FI2BBDF(3)) and fully implicit 3point block backward differentiation formula of order three (FI3BBDF(3))” should be corrected to “The following equations represent the formulas of fully implicit 2point block backward differentiation formulas of order three (FI2BBDF(3)) and fully implicit 3point block backward differentiation formula of order five (FI3BBDF(5)).” Accordingly, equation (4) should be written as follows:
FI3BBDF(5). One has
In the fifth paragraph of the “Introduction” section, the sentence “The formulas of fully implicit 2point block extended backward differentiation formula of order three (FI2BEBDF(3)) and fully implicit 3point block extended backward differentiation formula of order three (FI3BEBDF(3)) are given in the following forms” should be corrected to “The formulas of fully implicit 2point block extended backward differentiation formula of order four (FI2BEBDF(4)) and fully implicit 3point block extended backward differentiation formula of order six (FI3BEBDF(6)) are given in the following forms.” Accordingly, equation shows the “FI2BEBDF(4)” not “FI2BEBDF(3).” Moreover, equation should be written as follows:
FI3BEBDF(6). One hasIn “Numerical Results” section, the sentence “Tables 1 and 2 present the performance comparison of DI2BBDF(2), DI2BBDF(3), and DI2BBDF(4) with FI2BBDF(3) and FI2BEBDF(3), whereas Tables 3–6 exhibit the comparison of proposed methods with FI3BBDF(3) and FI3BEBDF(3)” should be changed to “Tables 1 and 2 present the performance comparison of DI2BBDF(2), DI2BBDF(3), and DI2BBDF(4) with FI2BBDF(3) and FI2BEBDF(4), whereas Tables 3–6 exhibit the comparison of proposed methods with FI3BBDF(5) and FI3BEBDF(5).” Moreover, the notations used in Tables 1–6 are updated as follows: : step size MAXE: maximum error TIME: time execution using high performance computer (HPC) DI2BBDF(2): diagonally implicit 2point block backward differentiation formulas of order 2 DI2BBDF(3): diagonally implicit 2point block backward differentiation formulas of order 3 DI2BBDF(4): diagonally implicit 2point block backward differentiation formulas of order 4 FI2BBDF(3): fully implicit 2point block backward differentiation formulas of order 3 FI2BEBDF(4): fully implicit 2point block extended backward differentiation formulas of order 4 FI3BBDF(5): fully implicit 3point block backward differentiation formulas of order 5 FI3BEBDF(6): fully implicit 3point block extended backward differentiation formulas of order 6.
Therefore, you can find the corrected versions of Tables 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6. Moreover the keys of Figures 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10 should be modified as shown in Tables 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, and 6 and Figures 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10.






In the “Discussion” section, there are corrections in the subsections “Maximum Error” and “Computational Time” explained below.
In subsection “Maximum Error,” the sentence “Among the methods of order three, DI2BBDF is more accurate compared with FI2BBDF, FI3BBDF, FI2BEBDF, and FI3BEBDF” should be changed to “Among the methods of order three, DI2BBDF is more accurate compared with FI2BBDF(3), FI3BBDF, FI2BEBDF, and FI3BEBDF.”
In subsection “Computational Time,” the sentence “In Tables 12, it can be seen that the execution time taken by DI2BBDF(2), DI2BBDF(3), and DI2BBDF is comparable with that of FI2BBDF(3) and FI2BEBDF(3)” should be changed to “In Tables 12, it can be seen that the execution time taken by DI2BBDF(2), DI2BBDF(3), and DI2BBDF is comparable with that of FI2BBDF(3) and FI2BEBDF.” In addition, the sentence “However, Tables 3–6 show that the proposed methods compute faster than FI3BBDF(3) and FI3BEBDF(3)” should be changed to “However, Tables 3–6 show that the proposed methods compute faster than FI3BBDF(3) and FI3BEBDF”.
The authors apologize to the readers for these errors.
