    Could you give me some practical ideas about the required software and methodology? Thank you very much

    If all the parameters are known, did you try to just calculate it time steps by time step? Did it work?
    There are more precise integration methods, but that is something you can have a look at afterwards.

    Yes, all the parameters are known, but how I can calculate the time step by time step?

    Time is the independent variable. You start your calculations at t = 0, increment t, rinse and repeat.

    And how I could implement it in software?, I need a numerical solution of this equations.
