We constructed a new fifth order five-stage singly diagonally implicit Runge-Kutta (DIRK)method which is specially designed for the integrations of linear ordinary differential equations (LODEs). The restriction to linear ordinary differential equations (ODEs) reduces the number of conditions which the coefficients of the Runge-Kutta method must satisfy. The best strategy for practical purposes would be to choose the coefficients of the Runge-Kutta methods such that the error norm is minimized. Thus, here the error norm obtained from the error equations of the sixth order method is minimized so that the free parameters chosen are obtained from the minimized error norm. The stability aspect of the method is also looked into and found to have substantial region of stability, thus it is stable. Then a set of test problems are used to validate the method. Numerical results show that the new method is more efficient in terms of accuracy compared to the existing method.
