Method Detail

getName

String getName()
Get the name of the method.

Returns:
name of the method

addStepHandler

void addStepHandler(StepHandler handler)
Add a step handler to this integrator.

The handler will be called by the integrator for each accepted step.

Parameters:
handler - handler for the accepted steps
Since:
2.0
See Also:
getStepHandlers(), clearStepHandlers()

getStepHandlers

Collection<StepHandler> getStepHandlers()
Get all the step handlers that have been added to the integrator.

Returns:
an unmodifiable collection of the added events handlers
Since:
2.0
See Also:
addStepHandler(StepHandler), clearStepHandlers()

clearStepHandlers

void clearStepHandlers()
Remove all the step handlers that have been added to the integrator.

Since:
2.0
See Also:
addStepHandler(StepHandler), getStepHandlers()

addEventHandler

void addEventHandler(EventHandler handler,
                     double maxCheckInterval,
                     double convergence,
                     int maxIterationCount)
Add an event handler to the integrator. Uses a default UnivariateSolver with an absolute accuracy equal to the given convergence threshold, as root-finding algorithm to detect the state events.

Parameters:
handler - event handler
maxCheckInterval - maximal time interval between switching function checks (this interval prevents missing sign changes in case the integration steps becomes very large)
convergence - convergence threshold in the event time search
maxIterationCount - upper limit of the iteration count in the event time search
See Also:
getEventHandlers(), clearEventHandlers()

addEventHandler

void addEventHandler(EventHandler handler,
                     double maxCheckInterval,
                     double convergence,
                     int maxIterationCount,
                     UnivariateSolver solver)
Add an event handler to the integrator.

Parameters:
handler - event handler
maxCheckInterval - maximal time interval between switching function checks (this interval prevents missing sign changes in case the integration steps becomes very large)
convergence - convergence threshold in the event time search
maxIterationCount - upper limit of the iteration count in the event time search
solver - The root-finding algorithm to use to detect the state events.

getEventHandlers(), clearEventHandlers()

getEventHandlers

Collection<EventHandler> getEventHandlers()
Get all the event handlers that have been added to the integrator.

Returns:
an unmodifiable collection of the added events handlers
See Also:
addEventHandler(EventHandler, double, double, int), clearEventHandlers()

clearEventHandlers

void clearEventHandlers()
Remove all the event handlers that have been added to the integrator.

See Also:
addEventHandler(EventHandler, double, double, int), getEventHandlers()

getCurrentStepStart

double getCurrentStepStart()
Get the current value of the step start time ti.

This method can be called during integration (typically by the object implementing the differential equations problem) if the value of the current step that is attempted is needed.

The result is undefined if the method is called outside of calls to integrate.

Returns:
current value of the step start time ti

getCurrentSignedStepsize

double getCurrentSignedStepsize()
Get the current signed value of the integration stepsize.

This method can be called during integration (typically by the object implementing the differential equations problem) if the signed value of the current stepsize that is tried is needed.

The result is undefined if the method is called outside of calls to integrate.

Returns:
current signed value of the stepsize

setMaxEvaluations

void setMaxEvaluations(int maxEvaluations)
Set the maximal number of differential equations function evaluations.

The purpose of this method is to avoid infinite loops which can occur for example when stringent error constraints are set or when lots of discrete events are triggered, thus leading to many rejected steps.

Parameters:
maxEvaluations - maximal number of function evaluations (negative values are silently converted to maximal integer value, thus representing almost unlimited evaluations)

getMaxEvaluations

int getMaxEvaluations()
Get the maximal number of functions evaluations.

Returns:
maximal number of functions evaluations

getEvaluations

int getEvaluations()
Get the number of evaluations of the differential equations function.

The number of evaluations corresponds to the last call to the integrate method. It is 0 if the method has not been called yet.

Returns:
number of evaluations of the differential equations function
