Hello, I find it a little unsatisfying to simply state in my thesis, that I used NDSolve on my problem. I need to know, which method is actually used by it. Can anyone help me on that? Searching Mathsource I only found a massive amount of files, all of them not very helpful. I didn't read them all, since I don't like downloading a huge postscript file, printing it, and then discover it has nothing to do with my problem. Can't there be text versions as well? And: can't there be a list of the methods used by Mathematica? That's what bothers me most of MMA: I have to use it as a black box. For standard problems, that might be okay, but if I know what MMA does when I hit the button, I can far better check if it's the appropriate routine or not. After all, MMA is using only published numerical methods, isn't it? Other programs I use, tell me where to find the routine they're using. Thanks for hints, Tobias ==== [MESSAGE SEPARATOR] ====
