Abstract : The use of implicit integration of ODE'S TO AVOID THE SPLIT TIME CONSTANT PROBLEM HAS BEEN THOUGHT OF AS A NUMERICAL PANACEA, ESPECIALLY SINCE THE ASSOCIATED MATRIX REDUCTION PROBLEM HAS BEEN ALLEVIATED USING HIGHLY-EFFICIENT COMPUTER-GENERATED MATRIX REDUCTION ALGORITHMS. This letter points out a significant exception to this premise, demonstrated in a circuit analysis context. (Author)
