Re: NDSolve output without interpolating function


Another "wow" from me. I hope the right person at Wolfram is listening. It would be really great to know about this additional functionality for NDSolve within its documentation, which is a great function that I have been using since 1994 (flattery to Wolfram!) and for which I am very keen to now learn about these additional possibilities (petition to Wolfram!). Please.

I filed a suggestion that the documentation on "MethodInformation" be
improved in the future.

In general, I usually, try "Properties" and "Methods" on objects. Some of
them offer additional functionality (while the one in this case can be
accessed via the anatomy package (tutorial/NDSolvePackages#120436095))


Thanks,
Oliver
