Discretization of the transient term for the transport equation
[NEWBIE QUESTION]

I want to use a second order implicit time integration scheme to solve
the advection-convection equation over relatively large time steps. I
found two options : Crank?Nicolson and the second order backward
differential formula (cf http://www.cfd-online.com/Wiki/Implicit_second_order_method).

For the Crank?Nicolson numerical scheme, a low CFL number is not
required for stability, but I think it is required for numerical
accuracy, so this method looks less interesting for me. Is the 2e
order BDF a better choice in this case ? I would appreciate advice on
this issue.

Thanks,

Christine
