### Solving ODEs with nonlinear constraints

I'm trying to solve an ODE problem. Let's say $\mathbf{x}(t)$ represents the position of a particle at time $t$, and $\mathbf{u}(\mathbf{x},t)$ is a velocity field defined in Cartesian coordinates on ...

### The Formula of Explicit Runge-Kutta Fourteen order

I need an explicit Runge-Kutta 14th order formula. If you know about some reference that discusses at least 10th order (or higher, since I'm looking for the 14th) of Runge-Kutta and there is ...

### What exactly is the cause(s) of blow-up for too-large step size in a method like RK4?

I have been working on creating a few home-made numerical methods, and I am using them to visualize text-book problems from my Strogatz dynamics textbook. It feels like a good way to learn numerical ...

### Runge-Kutta timestep in atomic units

I'm using 4th order RK to solve the schroedinger equation in atomic units. Say I want to simulate 400fs in intervals of h=10fs, then in atomic units this is h=413a.u and 400fs=16500a.u. 4RK involves ...
