Ra'ft Abdelrahim, Z. Omar, O. Ala’yed, B. Batiha


This paper deals with two-step hybrid block method with one generalized off-step points for solving second order initial value problem. In derivation of this method, power series of order nine are interpolated at the first two step points while its second and third derivatives are collocated at all point in the selected interval. The new developed method is employed to solve several problems of second order initial value problems. Convergence analysis of the new method alongside numerical procedure is established. The performance of the proposed method is found to be more accurate than existing method available in the literature when solving the same problems.
