This file is used to generate a numerical
solution to an IVP using ` bdode45.m`. Its MATLAB command is
` sol1`. It uses data from ` init.m` and also requires direct
input from the user. It first asks if a slopefield is also desired.
Then next asks for a necessary initial condition . The
initial condition can be chosen by clicking directly on the graphics
window with the provided cross-hairs, or by clicking outside the
graphics area then entering the desired values directly in the
command window. ` sol1.m` works reasonably well, however in
some cases the numerical routine can bog down if there are
troublesome regions for the ODE. If this takes too long for your
tastes, ` CTRL-C` will make MATLAB give up its current calculation
and return to the command prompt.
