I assume that you use Scipy-0.2 from CVS. There is no vode support in
Scipy-0.1. So, the first pointer is
>>> import scipy
>>> print scipy.integrate.ode.__doc__
ode - a generic interface class to numeric integrators. It has the
following methods:
integrator = ode(f,jac=None)
integrator = integrator.set_integrator(name,**params)
integrator = integrator.set_initial_value(y0,t0=0.0)
integrator = integrator.set_f_params(*args)
integrator = integrator.set_jac_params(*args)
y1 = integrator.integrate(t1,step=0,relax=0)
flag = integrator.successful()
Typical usage:
r = ode(f,jac).set_integrator('vode').set_initial_value(y0,t0)
t1 = <final t>
dt = <step>
while r.successful() and r.t < t1:
r.integrate(r.t+dt)
print r.t, r.y
where f and jac have the following signatures:
def f(t,y[,arg1,..]):
return <f(t,y)>
def jac(t,y[,arg1,..]):
return <df/dy(t,y)>
>>>
Second, you can take a look at the source code in
scipy/integrate/ode.py
There are some general notes in the header.
The file contains two simple examples, you should also study these.
In fact, you don't need scipy to run vode from python but
then you need to have the following files from scipy/integrate/ directory:
vode.pyf - this must be compiled with f2py.
ode.py - high level interface to vode function
vode.f + some blas/lapack functions.
Then you can run
f2py -c vode.pyf vode.f -L/path/to/atlas -lf77blas -lcblas -latlas -lg2c
that will build vode.so extension module that is used by ode.py.
