Estimates the steadystate condition for a system of ordinary differential equations.
Assumes a banded jacobian matrix.

y 
the initial guess of (state) values for the ODE system, a vector.

time, times 
time for which steadystate is wanted; the default is

func 
either an Rfunction that computes the values of the
derivatives in the ode system (the model defininition) at time The return value of The derivatives
should be specified in the same order as the state variables 
parms 
parameters passed to 
nspec 
the number of *species* (components) in the model. 
bandup 
the number of nonzero bands above the Jacobian diagonal. 
banddown 
the number of nonzero bands below the Jacobian diagonal. 
... 
additional arguments passed to function 
This is the method of choice for singlespecies 1D models.
For multispecies 1D models, this method can only be used if the state variables are arranged per box, per species (e.g. A[1],B[1],A[2],B[2],A[3],B[3],.... for species A, B).
Usually a 1D *model* function will have the species arranged as
A[1],A[2],A[3],....B[1],B[2],B[3],....
in this case, use steady.1D
A list containing
y 
a vector with the state variable values from the last iteration
during estimation of steadystate condition of the system of equations.
