Implicit methods for time integration suffer from certain drawbacks when compared to explicit schemes, but have also their own advantages. Implicit programs are often characterized by a high degree of generality. The time step length is not so strongly limited by stability considerations and the cost of one time step is thus a not so critical criterion of performance. This allows for more frequent use of auxiliary memory, and thus a more flexible organization in the library of elements, and the size of the problems to be solved.
