I'm solving a first order linear ODE system numerically three different ways: implicit Euler, explicit Euler, and RK4. Attached are the plots of the numerical solutions (line and stream of small closely-connected dots) and the exact solution (big dots). Also I plot the maximum error (right column).(adsbygoogle = window.adsbygoogle || []).push({});

My question is, why are some techniques better than others?
