Hi,
I'm trying to integrate a function with NDSolve (ExplicitRungeKutta method), and it doesn't seem to recognize vector variables (I keep getting an incorrect dimension error). In addition, I would like to integrate over an absolute distance and I don't know how to do that in Mathematica. For simplicity's sake, I will post a random example of what I'm talking about:
U[x] = {2*x[[2]],x[[1]]/3,x[[3]]} is the derivative
X0 = {1,1,1} is the initial condition
so if a'[s] = U[x[s]], I'd like to solve for a[s] where s is the total distance. And s is to be integrated from 0 to 6 with a[0]=X0.
Ultimately, I have a derivative that depends on a 3-component position vector. I want to integrate that derivative over a total distance traveled from a starting point.
Any advice would be helpful. Thanks,
John
