Instructions - Ordinary Differential Equation Calculator


The ordinary differential equation calculator solves coupled first order ordinary differential equations of x, y, and z.

General Information:

  1. Enter the equations for dx/dt, dy/dt, and dz/dt in the space provided. Equations should be written as functions of x, y, z, and t.
  2. Enter in the initial values of x, y, and z in the space provided.
  3. Enter in the initial time, final time, and time step in the space provided.
  4. Use the pull down menu to choose an integration method.
  5. Press the run button, or hit enter in any of the text fields to run the model.
  6. The graph will show x, y, and z in red, blue, and green respectively.
