In this article, a sin single-step rational method for the numerical numerical solution of the first order differential equation and corresponding initial value problems has been proposed. Also, the consistency and stability of the proposed second order implicit, non-linear method are discussed. The development of the method is based on the local representation of the solution by the sin-rational fraction. Numerical examples are considered to establish the theoretical development of the method and illustrate the computational accuracy and efficiency.

Keywords: Initial value problems, single-step method, rational method, second order method, sin-rational method
