=head1 NAME
Math::ODE - Solve N-th Order Ordinary Differential Equations
=head1 DESCRIPTION
This module allows you to solve N-th Order Ordinary Differential Equations with
as little pain as possible. Currently, only IVP's (initial value problems) are
supported, but native support for BVP's (boundary value problems) may be added
in the future. To solve N-th order equations, you must first turn it into a
system of N first order equations, as in MATLAB.
=head1 SYNOPSIS
use Math::ODE;
# create new object that stores data in a file
# and solve the given equation(s) on the interval
# [0,10], with initial condition y(t0) = 0
my $o = new Math::ODE ( file => '/home/user/data',
step => 0.1,
initial => [0],
DE => [ \&DE1 ],
t0 => 1,
tf => 10 );
$o->evolve();
# solve the equation y' = 1/$t
# $t is the independent variable, a scalar
# $y is the dependent variable, an array reference
sub DE1 { my ($t,$y) = @_; return 1/$t; }
=over 2
=item *
C<$o-Eevolve()>
Evolves the equations from C<$o-Et0> to C<$o-Etf> using a 4th Order Classic Runge-Kutta method.
# Example 1: Solve y'' + y = 0, y(0) = 0, y'(0) = 1
# Solution: y = sin(x)
use Math::ODE;
my $o = new Math::ODE ( file => 'data',
step => 0.1,
initial => [0,1],
DE => [ \&DE0, \&DE1 ],
t0 => 0,
tf => 10 );
$o->evolve;
# to plot data in gnuplot: plot 'data' using 1:2, sin(x)
# y'' + y = 0
sub DE0 { my ($t,$y) = @_; return $y->[1]; }
sub DE1 { my ($t,$y) = @_; return -$y->[0]; }
To turn y'' + y = 0 into a system, we will imagine a vector with two
components, called y. Now let the first component y0 = y and the second
component y1 = y0' . Now rewrite the equation in terms of these variables. It
will be y1' + y0 = 0. Solving for y1' we get y1' = -y0. Now the vector y' has
compenents y0' = y1 and y1' = -y0 . These are the equations we put in our DE*
sub's, except we use an arrayref. The DE0 sub corresponds to our y0' component
and the DE1 sub corresponds to our y1' component. This can be *ahem* easily
generalized to any N-th Oder equation or system of equations. An example of
a system of second order equations is given in example/de4. Please look in
there for other examples as well.
The C arrayref corresponds to the initial conditions of each of the
components of the dependent variable vector. C<[0,1]> means that the first
component at C<$o-Et0> (which happens to be 0) will have the value 0 and
the second component at C<$o-Et0> (which is 10) will have the value 1.
=item *
C<$o-EDE($F)>
Sets the equations to be solved to C<$F>. C<$F> must be an arrayref
of coderefs, or Bad Things May Occur (tm). If C<$F> is not the same
size as C<$o-Einitial>, you should be ashamed of yourself,
and your program will exit accordingly.
=item *
C<$o-Einitial($arrayref)>
Set the initial conditions to C<$arrayref>. Returns an arrayref
of initial conditions if no arguments are given. Must be the same
size as C<$o-EDE> or autovivisection will ensue.
=item *
C<$o-Estep($s)>
This will set the step size (length of the segments of the
interval) to C<$s>, which must be positive. The default is 0.01.
Returns the step size if no arguments are given.
=item *
C<$o-Et0($a)>
This will set the initial (leftmost) point on the interval to C<$a>.
Returns the initial point on the interval if no arguments are given.
=item *
C<$o-Etf($b)>
This will set the last (rightmost) point on the interval to C<$b>.
Returns the end point on the interval if no arguments are given.
=item *
C<$o-Efile($somefile)>
Save data in $somefile. Returns the file in which the data is being saved if no
arguments are given. If no file is specified, data is printed to STDOUT. The
data file will have $N+1 columns (where $N is the number of equations to
solve), and can be fed directly to gnuplot. The first column is the independent
variable, and the remaining are the first through nth components of the
dependent vector. Examples of graphing the data file are in the example/
directory of the source distribution.
