A question about using odeint to solve Van der Pol equation

2 New Member
I was wondering about the odeint function in scipy.
While I was solving the Van der pol equations, I found the function odeint
is not suitable. I know there are some differences between Runge-kutta method and RKF method, and only the RKF method can be used to solve the Van der Pol system.
But what should I do by the scipy function 'odeint'?
Thanks a lot!

The python program is given as follow,

#! /usr/bin/python
# Filename:vaderp ol.py

from scipy import *
from pylab import *
deriv= lambda y,t :array([y[1],y[0]-u*(y[0]**2-1)*y[1]])

time=linspace(s tart,end,numste ps)
from scipy import integrate
y=integrate.ode int(deriv,y0,ti me,hmax=0.2,hmi n=0.0 01)

While googling for a non-linear equation solver, I found Math::Polynomial::Solve in CPAN. It seems a great little module, except it's not Python... I'm especially looking for its poly_root() functionality (which solves arbitrary polynomials). Does anyone know of a Python module/package that implements that? Just

Hi all, I have two questions about scipy. 1) When I was trying to solve a single variable equations using scipy, I found two methods: scipy.optimize.fsolve, which is designated to find the roots of a polynomial, and scipy.optimize.newton, which is used for Scalar function root finding according to the help(). I have tried both, and it...

Hi all, I met a weird problem when using scipy.integrate.odeint(). It is followed as: from scipy import * y=integrate.odeint(lambda y,t:sin(y)*y,y0=random.rand(N),t=arange(0,100)) If N>= 73300 or N<=70400, it works well.

Could you guys do me a favor for solving a equation set? Z=d/4*(1-SIN(X)/X) X=8q/(D^2*Y)+SIN(X) Y=1/n*Z^(2/3)*i^(1/2) In this equation set, X,Y&Z are the unkown parameters, the others say, d, q, n&i are known. SO in python, how to program it to represent X, Y and Z in the form of d, q, n and i?
