# On the uniform accuracy of implicit-explicit backward differentiation formulas (IMEX-BDF) for stiff hyperbolic relaxation systems and kinetic equations

2 Dec 2019Jingwei HuRuiwen Shu

Many hyperbolic and kinetic equations contain a non-stiff convection/transport part and a stiff relaxation/collision part (characterized by the relaxation or mean free time $\varepsilon$). To solve this type of problems, implicit-explicit (IMEX) Runge-Kutta or multistep methods have been widely used and their performance is understood well in the non-stiff regime ($\varepsilon=O(1)$) and limiting regime ($\varepsilon\rightarrow 0$)...
