Andrew,
I'm afraid Emil will have to take a look at this and explain it. The -ts_type beuler and -ts_type theta -ts_theta_theta .5 are stable but the -ts_type cn is not stable. It turns out that -ts_type cn is equivalent to -ts_type theta -ts_theta_theta .5 -ts_theta_endpoint and somehow this endpoint business (which I don't understand) is causing a problem. Meanwhile if I add -ts_theta_adapt to the endpoint one it becomes stable ? Anyways all cases are displayed below.
Emil,
What's up with this? Does the endpoint business have a bug or can it not be used for this problem (the matrix A is a function of t.)

The solution vector is given for when you are solving nonlinear problems (A(t) also depends on U(t)). In my case, I don’t even look at the solution vector (because my A(t) doesn’t depend on it).
