In all numerical methods, it is necessary to ascertain the validity of any particular scheme. And this is possible to determine, by verifying the nature of the stability of that scheme. So the general stability function definition is given, from where an investigation is carried out on a class of rational integrator of order 15, to establish the region of absolute stability of the scheme, by constructing the Jordan curve. In the process of expanding the rational function, binomial theorem as well as the idea of combination process were introduced to ease the computation by using Maple-18 package. The simplification of the general rational integrator formula, is constructed from two processes namely through complex function, and then through polar analysis, The Jordan curve is constructed with the help of MATLAB package. Furthermore, it was discovered that the region of instability is on the positive side of the complex plane, while the region of absolute stability is outside the Jordan curve. Finally, it is further established that the encroachment point, τ, lie within the interval ± 140.6. And the encroachment point is visible from the corresponding values of ø and R at the extremes. The stability curve revealed that the integrator is not only A-stable, but also L- stable.
