Hi,

and just say that instead of

sol = NDSolve[{x''[t] + \[Gamma]*x'[t] + x[t] == Cos[t], x[0] == 1,
     x'[0] == 0} /. \[Gamma] -> 0.05, x[t], {t, 0, 8 Pi}]

you wish to solve

sol = NDSolve[{x''[t] + \[Gamma]*x'[t] + x[t] == Cos[t], x[0] == 1,
     x'[0] == 0} /. \[Gamma] -> 0.05, x[t], {t, -8 Pi, 8 Pi}]


does not help ??

Regards
   Jens

I have written equations which do a beautiful job of 3D plotting the results from t=0 to any positive time. The only boundary conditions available are at t=0. I am able to get the correct 3D plot for negative time if I reverse all of the velocities at t=0. I assume that I can then get a plot that combines the two into one plot from negative time to positive time. But this seems very "klutsy" and I believe that Mathematica must provide a sophisticated way to get the   results in a single operation. Any suggestions?
