Therefore, it is best to include safety factors such as ( " #) 1=p hOPT = h min M AX max M IN s ~ : (3.5.9b) kdnkw The factors M AX and M IN limit the maximum step size increase and decrease, respectively, while s tends to make step size changes more conservative. Possible choices of the parameters are M AX = 5, M IN = 0:1, and s = 0:9. Step size control based on either (3.5.8a) or (3.5.8c) works similarly. In general, the user must also provide a maximum step size hMAX so that the code does not miss interesting features in the solution. Selection of the initial step size is typically left to the user. This can be somewhat problematical and several automatic initial step size procedures are under investigation. One automatic...

### What students are saying

• As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

• I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

• The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
