Abstract: For many systems of differential equations modeling problems in science and engineering, there are often natural splittings of the right hand side into two parts, one of which is non-stff or mildly stff, and the other part is stff. Such systems can be effciently treated by a class of implicit-explicit (IMEX) diagonally implicit multistage integration methods (DIMSIMs), where the stiff part is integrated by implicit formula, and the non-stiff part is integrated by an explicit formula. We analyze stability of these methods when the implicit and explicit parts interact with each other. We look for methods with large absolute stability region, assuming that the implicit part of the method is A(alpha)-, A-, or L-stable. Finally, we furnish examples of IMEX DIMSIMs of order p = 5 and p = 6 and stage order q = p, with good stability properties. Numerical examples illustrate that the IMEX schemes constructed in this paper do not suffer from order reduction phenomenon for some range of stepsizes.

Keywords: IMEX methods, general linear methods, DIMSIMs, stability analysis, optimization methods, construction of highly stable methods
