Description

The derivative function of the non-dimensional version of the Lindemann Mechanism, an example of a two-dimensional autonomous ODE system.

Usage

1
lindemannMechanism(t, y, parameters)

Arguments

t

The value of t, the independent variable, to evaluate the derivative at. Should be a single number.

y

The values of x and y, the dependent variables, to evaluate the derivative at. Should be a vector of length two.

parameters

The values of the parameters of the system. Should be a single number prescribing the value of α.

Details

lindemannMechanism evaluates the derivative of the following ODE at the point (t, x, y):

dx/dt = -x2 + αxy, dy/dt = x2 - αxy - y.

Its format is designed to be compatible with ode from the deSolve package.

Value

Returns a list containing the values of the two derivatives at (t, x, y).
