trapezoidal

trapezoidal, an Octave code which solves one or more ordinary differential equations (ODE) using the (implicit) trapezoidal method, and fsolve to handle the implicit system.

Unless the right hand side of the ODE is linear in the dependent variable, each trapezoidal step requires the solution of an implicit nonlinear equation. Such equations can be approximately solved using methods such as fixed point iteration, or an implicit equation solver like fsolve().

Languages:

trapezoidalal is available in a MATLAB version and an Octave version and a Python version and an R version.
