Hi Mark,
at first
I think that it is really dangerous to use sutch side
effect, because there is *no* guarantie that NDSolve evaluate
the differential equations in the same order as given. NDSolve
has to do a lot of things bevore it can start with the numerical
solution.
at second
don't talk about efficient solutions, Mathematica is a interpreter
and will be allways 100 or more times slower than a compiled
code. You can still using Mathematica via MathLink for dawing and post processing.
You mix up in Your code assignet function values and indexing. f[1]=v^2 will assign
the value v^2 to the function f[z] for z=1, indexing f[[1]]=v^2 mean that the first component
of the vector f has the value v^2. How ever here is a working example
(*
PARAMETER IS: f[[1]]
*)
Clear[ f,calc ];
f={0.};
calc[ v_Real ] := ( f[[1]] = v^2; 0 )
NDSolve[ {dummy'[t] ==calc[p[t]], dummy[0]==0,
p'[t] == -p[t] + f[[1]], p[0]==0 },
{dummy,p}, {t,0,1},Compiled->False ]
{{dummy -> InterpolatingFunction[{0., 1.}, <>],
p -> InterpolatingFunction[{0., 1.}, <>]}}
Hope that helps
Jens
