Abstract. In this paper, a new block numerical integrator for solving second order initial value problems (IVP) of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) is proposed. The method was derived using interpolation and collocation of power series approximate solution to generate a continuous hybrid linear multistep method which was later solved at independent grid point to give discrete hybrid block method. The analysis of the basic properties of the method shows that the scheme is consistent, convergent and zero stable. Numerical experimentations and comparative analysis with existing methods show that our scheme is efficient.
