We show the dummy derivatives index reduction method for DAEs, introduced in 1993 by Mattsson & Söderlind, is a particular case of the Pryce ΣΣ-method solution scheme. We give a pictorial display of the underlying block triangular form. This approach gives a simple general method to cast the reduced system in semi-explicit index 1 form, combining order reduction and index reduction in one process. It also shows each DD scheme for a given DAE is uniquely described by an integer “DDspec” vector δδ. The method is illustrated by an example. We give various reasons why, contrary to common belief, converting further from semi-explicit index 1 form to an explicit ODE, can be a good idea for numerical solution.
