Hi, To integrate systems of differential algebraic equations or polynomial equations look at the IMTEK Mathematica Supplement: http://www.imtek.uni-freiburg.de/simulation/mathematica/IMSweb/imsTOC/Differential%20Equation%20Systems/System%20Theory/TimeIntegrateDocu.html or a BDF solver: http://www.imtek.uni-freiburg.de/simulation/mathematica/IMSweb/imsTOC/Differential%20Equation%20Systems/System%20Theory/BDFDocu.html (see example 4) you might want to try a sub-space projection. this projects your original system of 1920 degrees of freedom to say 100 degrees of freedom, which of course are much faster to time integrate and use less memory. http://www.imtek.uni-freiburg.de/simulation/mathematica/IMSweb/imsTOC/Differential%20Equation%20Systems/Model%20Order%20Reduction/ArnoldiDocu.html hth, Oliver On Thu, 7 Feb 2008, PV wrote: > Hello All, > This is a general question that has reared up its head following my > earlier question and discussion, > (for the interested:: > http://groups.google.ca/group/comp.soft-sys.math.mathematica/browse_thread/thread/be4cfdb2c357400b?hl=en#b3d4099a15314475) > I have a large matrix (1920*1920), simple first order differential > equation that I try to solve using NDSolve.
