Differential Equations

Mathcad has multiple functions to solve various differential equation systems. These solvers are numeric solutions and approximate the exact solutions. The solutions are a saved series of points and do not provide a smooth function. Units are not allowed in the differential equation solvers.

The two easiest-to-use functions, Odesolve and Pdesolve, are used within Solve Blocks. These will be discussed shortly. There are many other functions that help solve systems of differential equations, including Adams, AdamsBDF, BDF, Bulstoer, bvalfit, Jacob, multigrid, numol, Radau, relax, Rkadapt, rkfixed, sbval, statespace, Stiffb, and Stiffr. The discussion of these functions is beyond the scope of this book, but the Mathcad Help and QuickSheets have excellent discussions of both.
