Hi Robin,

here is the help text of the StoppingTest option

"StoppingTest is an option for NDSolve that can be used to stop the \
integration of the ode when a certain condition is found to be True.
The \ condition can evaluate to True/False only and should contain the
dependent \ and independent variables explicitly. This option cannot be
used for linear \
boundary value problems."

The result of NDSolve can still be used to obtain the results.

Hope that helps
