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: Hybrid optics bring color imaging using ultrathin metalenses into focus

For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.

But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...

Im Focus: Stem cell divisions in the adult brain seen for the first time

Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.

The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...

Im Focus: Autonomous 3D scanner supports individual manufacturing processes

Let’s say the armrest is broken in your vintage car. As things stand, you would need a lot of luck and persistence to find the right spare part. But in the world of Industrie 4.0 and production with batch sizes of one, you can simply scan the armrest and print it out. This is made possible by the first ever 3D scanner capable of working autonomously and in real time. The autonomous scanning system will be on display at the Hannover Messe Preview on February 6 and at the Hannover Messe proper from April 23 to 27, 2018 (Hall 6, Booth A30).

Part of the charm of vintage cars is that they stopped making them long ago, so it is special when you do see one out on the roads. If something breaks or...
