We consider the class of m-stage explicit Nyström methods for y″ = f(t, y) which are at least order one. We first show that the length of the interval of periodicity (see our definition in § 2) scaled by dividing by m for any such method cannot exceed two. While there exist methods of order one and two possessing this optimal length of interval of periodicity, we show that if a method of order higher than two possesses an interval of periodicity, then the length of its scaled interval of periodicity is less than two.
