# [SciPy-user] passing vector to integrate.ode

```I'm attempting to use the scipy integrators to solve a suite of similar
ODE's within a finite volume model (one system of equations in each grid
cell of the model). Currently, I'm looping over each cell in the model and
applying ode from scipy integrate. Is it possible to speed this up by
passing vectors of my parameters to the ode method?

Here's what I'm currently doing:

---
from scipy.integrate import ode
import numpy as N

def MDiff1(t,C,k,porI,porM):
#function for conc exchange between mobile and immobile domains
#C[0] is mobile and and C[1] is immobile concentration
dCI=(k/porI)*(C[0]-C[1])
dCM=(k/porM)*(C[1]-C[0])
return N.array([dCM,dCI])

porI=N.array([.5,.5,.5])
porM=N.array([.2,.2,.2])
dt=5000.
k=1.e-6

CMob=N.array([10.,10.,10.])
CIm=N.array([10.1,5.,1.])

r = ode(MDiff1)
r.set_integrator('vode', method='adams')

for i in range(1): #loop over time
for j in range(3): #loop over cells
r.set_initial_value(N.array([CMob[j],CIm[j]]))
r.set_f_params(k,porI[j],porM[j])
r.integrate(r.t+dt)
print (i+1)*r.t,r.y#, r.y[0]*porM+r.y[1]*porI
CMob[j],CIm[j]=r.y
---

In my simulation, CMob, CIm, porM, and porI are vectors with lenths in
the thousands. Are there better (faster) ways of doing this?
