Abstract. Several iteration schemes have been proposed to solve the non-linear equations arising in the implementation of implicit Runge-Kutta methods. As an alternative to the modified Newton scheme, some iteration schemes with reduced linear algebra costs have been proposed A scheme of this type proposed in [9] avoids expensive vector transformations and is computationally more efficient. The rate of convergence of this scheme is examined in [9] when it is applied to the scalar test differential equation $x' = qx$ and the convergence rate depends on the spectral radius of the iteration matrix $M(z)$, a function of $z=hq$, where $h$ is the step-length. In this scheme, we require the spectral radius of $M(z)$ to be zero at $z=0$ and at $z=\infty$ in the $z$-plane in order to improve the rate of convergence of the scheme. New schemes with parameters are obtained for three-stage and four-stage Gauss methods. Numerical experiments are carried out to confirm the results obtained here.
