Manuscript Title: EXPFIT4 - a Fortran program for the numerical solution of systems of
nonlinear second-order initial-value problems. | ||

Authors: L.Gr. Ixaru, H. De Meyer, G. Vanden Berghe, M. Van Daele | ||

Program title: EXPFIT4 | ||

Catalogue identifier: ADEZ_v1_0Distribution format: gz | ||

Journal reference: Comput. Phys. Commun. 100(1997)71 | ||

Programming language: Fortran. | ||

Computer: 386/486 Pentium-based PC. | ||

Operating system: MS-DOS, Unix. | ||

Keywords: General purpose, Newtonian physics, Celestial mechanics, Linear and nonlinear Second order, Differential equations, Initial-value problems, Exponential fitting, Multistep methods, Stepsize control. | ||

Classification: 4.3. | ||

Nature of problem:All physical problems which lend themselves to a description by a non- stiff system of linear and/or nonlinear differential equations of second order, such as pendulum problems, anharmonic oscillator problems, Lagrange problems, celestial mechanics problems, etc. | ||

Solution method:A previously developed sixth-order four-step exponential-fitted method [2] is used in predictor-corrector mode. The efficiency of the method relies on the variability of the stepsize and on the control of the local truncation error. | ||

Running time:Depends on the size of the problem; of the order of a few seconds for systems of less than 10 equations and if no more than 1000 steps are required. | ||
