Software to help solve mathematical models

07.04.2008
This week, UPM unveiled their latest research at the World's Largest Market-Place for Inventions in Geneva. This software will help solve 2nd and 3rd order ordinary differential equations and will be useful to solve many mathematical models.

This week, University Putra Malaysia's team unveiled their latest inventions and products at the 34th International Exhibition of Inventions, New Techniques and Products in Geneva (April 2-6, 2008), also known as the World's Largest Market-Place for Inventions.

This research is on a software to solve 2nd and 3rd order ordinary differential equations without modifying the structure of the problem tested i.e. not reducing it to the first order system. The code is useful to the scientist, engineers, applied mathematicians and educators to solve many mathematical models in the form of higher order ordinary differential equations in various areas including physics, chemistry, biology, engineering and economics.

A structured and efficient algorithm of the new block method is developed for solving directly the second and third order system of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) using variable step size. This code will estimate the solutions of initial value problems at two points simultaneously in a block and therefore it may produce faster numerical results.

The higher order ODEs can be solved by reducing it to a system of first order ODEs and then solved using any numerical method i.e Euler method. This approach is very well established but it obviously will enlarge the system of first order ODEs. However, the developed code will solve the higher order ODEs directly without reducing it to the first order system. The aim is to solve the higher order ODEs as it appears and never modify the structure of the problem tested.

The code is suitable for solving the numerical integration of non stiff and mildly stiff higher order differential systems. The numerical results obtained are very efficient in terms of accuracy and timing. The source code developed would be useful to the scientist, engineers, applied mathematicians and educators to solve many mathematical models in the form of higher order ordinary differential equations in various areas including physics, chemistry, biology, engineering and economics.

Im Focus: Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.

The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Im Focus: Three Magnetic States for Each Hole

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".

Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
