3. NATURE OF PHYSICAL PROBLEM SOLVED

SAHYB-2 is a general purpose programme for the solution of ordinary differential equations. These are written in a user-supplied subroutine called DER, which uses notations very close to mathematical formulas. Special mathematical  functions are included in the programme, as:
Function generation, delay generation, steps, ramps and pulses, as well as a simplified standard output procedure - boundary value problems or parametric optimisation may be handled by iterations adding a subroutine called REPEAT.

4. METHOD OF SOLUTION

Integration is carried out by constant step fourth-order Runge-Kutta method, or by a fixed or variable step Adams-Moulton predictor corrector method.

5. RESTRICTIONS ON THE COMPLEXITY OF THE PROBLEM

   Maximum 150 differential equations of the first order.
   Maximum 30 tables for function generator or delay lines.

6. TYPICAL RUNNING TIME

Varies greatly with the size of problem - range from few minutes for small systems (less than 10 differential  equations) to a half hour for large problems.
top ]
7. UNUSUAL FEATURES OF THE PROGRAM

Uses for the problem description an analogue oriented vocabulary which is a sub set of FORTRAN, and is easily handled by engineers or physicists who are not programming specialists.

8. RELATED AND AUXILIARY PROGRAMS

Uses the subroutines for the CALCOMP digital plotter described in report EURATOM 2280/F, by P. Moinil and J. Pire. (programmation relative our CALCOMP).
