For the second question see first Implementation Notes: http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/book/section-A.9.4 Then http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/functions/NDSolve http://documents.wolfram.com/mathematica/functions/FindRoot Also take a look of Advanced Documentation in the Help-Browser.
