NDSolve does not let me to stop


Hi,

You say Mathematica can do wonders, but I just can't figure this one out.

I'm solving ODE for r[t] = {x[t],y[t]}. Is there a way to stop NDSolve from
going on, when {x[t],y[t]} fullfills a particular constrain (e.g.
Sqrt[x[t1]^2 + y[t1]^2] > 2) and get Interpolating Function object from 0 to
t1?

If ain't possible this way, how would you solve the problem (with
Mathematica build-in solvers)? It's essentially a very simple
'one-step-at-a-time' problem (e.g. Rungee Kutta), where you can check on
variables of integration after any time.

It seems to me, you can check on variables in NDSolve[eqs, {t,tmin,tmax}]
only at tmin and tmax.

Well?


Thanks for your time,

Borut Levart
