Initial Value Problems for ODEs: One-Step Methods



Initial value problems for ordinary differential equations (ODEs) occur in almost all the sciences, notably in mechanics (including celestial mechanics), where the motion of particles (resp., planets) is governed by Newton’s second law – a system of second-order differential equations.
