A class of second derivative parallel block Backward differentiation type
formulas is developed and the methods are inherently parallel and can be distributed over parallel processors. They are L–stable for block size k 6 with small error constants when compared to the conventional sequential Linear multi –step methods of the same order. Numerical results are presented.
