In this paper, we derive a family of three step hy-
brid linear multi-step (HLM) method type with one to three
o-step points. Orders and error constants and convergence
analysis of the proposed method are established. Numerical
experiments on special third order initial and boundary value
problems (IVPs, BVPs) are performed to show the eciency
and accuracy of the proposed methods over existing method
found in the literature.
