ODE-toolbox: Automatic selection and generation of integration schemes for systems of ordinary differential equations

Linssen, Charl; Morrison, Abigail; Eppler, Jochen Martin

Choosing the optimal solver for systems of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) is a critical step in dynamical systems simulation. ODE-toolbox is a Python package that assists in solver benchmarking, and recommends solvers on the basis of a set of user-configurable heuristics. For all dynamical equations that admit an analytic solution, ODE-toolbox generates propagator matrices that allow the solution to be calculated at machine precision. For all others, first-order update expressions are returned based on the Jacobian matrix.

In addition to continuous dynamics, discrete events can be used to model instantaneous changes in system state, such as a neuronal action potential. These can be generated by the system under test, as well as applied as external stimuli, making ODE-toolbox particularly well-suited for applications in computational neuroscience.
