    Runga-Kutta or Runge-Kutta

    What's the correct name for this method?

    On google, there's more hits for the latter, at 193 to 37, but what did you guys learn it as?

    My prof calls it Runge-Katta in his lecture notes, and Runga-Katta in the problem set.

    :confused:

    Thanks in advance.

    [edit]
    I misspelled Kutta as Katta :redface:
    But thanks for pointing out Runga vs. Runge

    Arildno should tell us.He's Norwegian.The correct spelling of their names is much more important than pronounciation,right?

    Or poor Ångström, both of whose vowels get mangled in typical (American, at least) English pronunciation, even if we remember to put in the diacritical marks. :cry:

    No wonder people usually use nanometers instead nowadays!
