thanks for all those tho replied regarding adding interpoating functions. few more questions... let's say you can Solve a system of equations like this. In[267]:= itxn = Solve[{0 == 1 - 2C[t] - 1 C[t] tf[t] + 2 tfC[t], 0 == -1 G[t] + 2 tfC[t], 0 == 1 - 2 tf[t] - 1 C[t] tf[t] + 2 tfC[t], 0 == 1 C[t] 2 tf[t] - 1 tfC[t] - 2 tfC[t]}, {C[t], G[t], tf[t], tfC[t]}][[1]] /. t -> 0 above give a replacement rule as below. {G[0] -> 4*(5 - 2*Sqrt[6]), tfC[0] -> 2*(5 - 2*Sqrt[6]), C[0] -> 3 - Sqrt[6], tf[0] -> 3 - Sqrt[6]} now I would like to use this rule asd part of NDSolve as initial conditions. but as we all know, it can't be used directly. the -> needs to be replaced with == now, if i try to Map a rule that replaces -> with ==, like... Map[{itxn[[1]] == itxn[[2]]}, itxn] it doesn't work. it gives a long list with wrong result. what i wanted though is {G[0] == 4*(5 - 2*Sqrt[6]), tfC[0] == 2*(5 - 2*Sqrt[6]), C[0] == 3 - Sqrt[6], tf[0] == 3 - Sqrt[6]} So, what i would like to do is use the results from the Solve directly in NDSolve as the initial conditions without having to manually edit out the arrows with equal signs. can you guys please shed some light on this matter? thank you very much in advance sean
