We present a systematic approach to the construction of starting procedures for general linear methods (GLMs) of order p and stage order q=p. Order conditions for starting procedures based on the generalized Runge–Kutta (RK) are derived using the theory of rooted trees, elementary differentials, and elementary weights, and examples of generalized RK formulas are given up to the order p=4.
