Mathematica NDSolve

  1. Oct 20, 2007 #1
    Hello. In my physical analysis class, a class with a lot of math physicists will need, we were talking about the 4th Order Runge-Kutta method. My professor said that it is what Maple used for numerical approximations. Although he pushed Maple, I use Mathematica and i was wondering what Mathematica uses for its default numerical solution function. Can anybody elaborate on Mathematica.

    Three quarters the way down it lists the methods you can tell Mathematica to do, up to 9th order R-K seems possible.
