A common analysis is the transient analysis, which computes the solution x(t) of this non-linear DAE along the time interval [0, T] for a given initial state. In the classical circuit simulators, this Initial Value Problem is solved by means of implicit inte- gration methods, like the BDF-methods. Each iteration, all equations are discretized by means of the same stepsize. Often, parts of electrical circuits have latency or multirate behaviour. Latency means that parts of the circuit are constant or slowly time-varying during a certain time interval. Multirate behaviour means that some variables are slowly time-varying compared to other variables. In both cases, it would be attractive to integrate these parts with a larger timestep. 1.1 Partition of the system For a multirate method it is necessary to partition the variables and equations into an active (A) and a latent (L) part. This can be done by the user or automatically. Let BA E ~dA xd and B L E ~dL xd with dA +
