In the article titled “Derivation of Diagonally Implicit Block Backward Differentiation Formulas for Solving Stiff Initial Value Problems,”  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 2-point block backward differentiation formulas of order three (FI2BBDF(3)) and fully implicit 3-point block backward differentiation formula of order three (FI3BBDF(3))” should be corrected to “The following equations represent the formulas of fully implicit 2-point block backward differentiation formulas of order three (FI2BBDF(3)) and fully implicit 3-point 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 2-point block extended backward differentiation formula of order three (FI2BEBDF(3)) and fully implicit 3-point 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 2-point block extended backward differentiation formula of order four (FI2BEBDF(4)) and fully implicit 3-point 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 sizeMAXE: maximum errorTIME: time execution using high performance computer (HPC)DI2BBDF(2): diagonally implicit 2-point block backward differentiation formulas of order 2DI2BBDF(3): diagonally implicit 2-point block backward differentiation formulas of order 3DI2BBDF(4): diagonally implicit 2-point block backward differentiation formulas of order 4FI2BBDF(3): fully implicit 2-point block backward differentiation formulas of order 3FI2BEBDF(4): fully implicit 2-point block extended backward differentiation formulas of order 4FI3BBDF(5): fully implicit 3-point block backward differentiation formulas of order 5FI3BEBDF(6): fully implicit 3-point 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 1-2, 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 1-2, 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.
