The energy technique for the six-step BDF method

In combination with the Grenander--Szeg\"o theorem, we observe that a relaxed positivity condition on multipliers, milder than the basic %fundamental requirement of the Nevanlinna--Odeh multipliers that the sum of the absolute values of their components is strictly less than $1$, makes the energy technique applicable to the stability analysis of BDF methods for parabolic equations with selfadjoint elliptic part. This is particularly useful for the six-step BDF method for which no Nevanlinna--Odeh multiplier exists. We introduce multipliers satisfying the positivity property for the six-step BDF method and establish stability of the method for parabolic equations.
