In this study, we give an improvement to the backward differentiation formula (BDF). We use a formula for the differences that permits us to determine the new coefficients αi^ and γi ^in function of the classical coefficients αi and γi of this method. Our proposed approach decreases the error and the cost of computation. Numerical results for concrete problems are given to support the theory.
