Descriptiona table containing the coefficients of a Runge-Kutta method
RepresentsRunge–Kutta method (Q725944)
Data typeMathematical expression
Example 1backward Euler method (Q2736820) 
Example 2explicit Runge–Kutta method (Q51846055) 
Example 3Ralston's method (Q51879118) 
Planned useadd property to the existing Runge-Kutta method items.
See alsodefining formula (P2534)

MotivationEdit

In mathematics, the Runge-Kutta methods are an important class of numerical methods for solving differential equations. Each method is defined by a set of coefficients that are arranged into a table called the Butcher tableau. Creating this property would allow each method to be tied to its tableau. Currently, on Wikipedia, the Butcher tableau for each Runge-Kutta method cannot be found in a consistent place on each page--sometimes not all. Adding a property would facilitate the creation of an infobox.

Making this property distinct from defining formula (P2534) is desirable because each Runge-Kutta method can also be written out as a set of equations that should be the defining formula (P2534) (cf. Euler method (Q868454)) The-erinaceous-one (talk) 06:36, 25 July 2020 (UTC)
