**polar_ode**,
a Python code which
sets up and solves an ordinary differential equation (ODE)
whose variable is complex, and whose solution should be viewed
in a polar coordinate plot.

Mr Sourpuss says: converting this program from MATLAB to Python involved some peculiar features of Python that truly perplexed me. I gave up on the midpoint calculation, and concentrated on solve_ivp, and managed to get things to work. It wasn't great fun or illuminating, but I did want to get a complex ODE working.

**polar_ode** is available in
a MATLAB version and
an Octave version and
a Python version.
