AB - We study order-adaptive implementations of Hermite methods for hyperbolic and singularly perturbed parabolic initial value problems. Exploiting the facts that Hermite methods allow the degree of the local polynomial representation to vary arbitrarily from cell to cell and that, for hyperbolic problems, each cell can be evolved independently over a time-step determined only by the cell size, a relatively straightforward method is proposed. Its utility is demonstrated on a number of model problems posed in 1+1 and 2+1 dimensions.
