We continue the work of various authors on the stability and the structure of the global error of linear multistep schemes applied to linear evolution equations. Here, BDF schemes are considered, and, as far as reasonable, explicit expressions for all occurring bounds are specified, exploiting prior work on the location of characteristic roots. The 2-step BDF scheme is considered in particular detail, and for problems of sectorial type, an asymptotic error expansion is derived based on damping properties of the scheme.
