ivp_rkts_interp computes the solution of a system of ordinary differential equations using interpolation anywhere on an integration step taken by ivp_rkts_onestep().

(errno )

You cannot call this function after the integrator has returned an error.

(errno )

You cannot call this function before you have called the step integrator.

(errno )

You cannot call this function when you have specified, in the setup function, that the range integrator will be used.

(errno )

or in setup, but interpolation is not available for this method. Either use or in setup or use reset function to force the integrator to step to particular points.

(errno )

On entry, , but the value passed to the setup function was .

(errno )

On entry, .

Constraint: , or .

(errno )

On entry, and .

Constraint: .

(errno )

On entry, a previous call to the setup function has not been made or the communication arrays have become corrupted, or a catastrophic error has already been detected elsewhere.

You cannot continue integrating the problem.


ivp_rkts_interp and its associated functions (ivp_rkts_setup(), ivp_rkts_onestep(), ivp_rkts_reset_tend(), ivp_rkts_diag() and ivp_rkts_errass()) solve the initial value problem for a first-order system of ordinary differential equations. The functions, based on Runge–Kutta methods and derived from RKSUITE (see Brankin et al. (1991)), integrate

where is the vector of solution components and is the independent variable.

ivp_rkts_onestep() computes the solution at the end of an integration step. Using the information computed on that step ivp_rkts_interp computes the solution by interpolation at any point on that step. It cannot be used if or was specified in the call to setup function ivp_rkts_setup().
