In this paper, we derive an explicit four stage fifth-order Improved Runge-Kutta (IRKD) method
for numerical integration of special third-order ordinary differential equation. The method proposed here is two-step
in nature and require less number of stages per step compared with the existing Runge-Kutta (RK) method. The
stability polynomial of the IRKD method is presented. Numerical results are given to illustrate the efficiency of the
proposed method compared to the RK method and direct Runge-Kutta (RKD) method for solving special third-order
ordinary differential equations.
