    Stability and accuracy of Nordsieck's integration method can be improved by choosing the zero-positions of the extraneous roots of the characteristic equation in a suitable way. Optimum zero-positions have been found by minimizing the lower bound of the interval of absolute stability and the coefficient of the truncation error. Various properties of the improved methods have been analysed, such as the behaviour of the high-order terms, the equivalence with multistep methods and the damping of perturbations.
