A family of second-order, L0-stable methods is developed and analysed for the numerical solution of the simple heat equation with time-dependent boundary conditions. Methods of the family need only real arithmetic in their implementation. In a series of numerical experiments no oscillations, which are a feature of some results obtained using A0-stable methods, are observed in the computed solutions. Splitting techniques for first- and second-order hyperbolic problems are also considered.
