# Talk:Kutta-Merson method

From Encyclopedia of Mathematics

The expression for k_4 in Eq. (2) has a mistake. The second argument to f should be y_0 + 1/8 k_1 + 3/8 k_3.

- Thank you. I am not an expert in it. Trying to check it, I look on Wikipedia: [1], but I do not understand, is it the same or not?

- The explicit Runge-Kutta method listed on this page does not appear, currently, on that Wikipedia page. I verified my correction by consulting the article's reference 1: [2]. The 3/8 factor multiplies k_3, not k_2. I was unable to edit the equation in the article myself. Adamace123 (talk) 20:44, 22 July 2014 (CEST)
- I see. OK, I've fixed it. Hope I did not introduce new errors. :-) Boris Tsirelson (talk) 22:35, 22 July 2014 (CEST)
