In this paper, we deal with the numerical solutions of ordinary differential equations (ODEs). Based on equidistant block methods, half-block methods for parallel computers are constructed. The stability properties of half-block methods are studied along with their predictor-corrector implementation. Numerical results are given to compare the efficiency of block methods and that of half-block methods.
