Abstract. A continuous representation based on the Hybrid Second Derivative Method (HSDM) is constructed and used to generate Initial Value Methods (IVMs) for stiff systems of first order ordinary differential equations. The IVMs are applied as simultaneous numerical integrators by assembling them into a single block matrix equation which is A-stable. Numerical results produced by the block method show that the method is competitive with existing ones in the literature.
