GLIMDA is a solver for nonlinear index-2 DAEs f(q’(t,x),x,t)=0.

Details about the implementation (FORTRAN) can be found in the PhD dissertation:

```
General Linear Methods for Integrated Circuit Design
Author: Steffen Voigtmann
```

- State events (root funtions) : False
- Step events (completed step) : True
- Time events : True

Import the solver together with the correct problem:

```
from assimulo.solvers import GLIMDA
from assimulo.problem import Implicit_Problem
```

Define the problem, such as:

```
def res(t, y, yd): #Note that y and yd are 1-D numpy arrays.
res = yd[0]-1.0
return N.array([res]) #Note that the return must be numpy array, NOT a scalar.
y0 = [1.0]
yd0 = [1.0]
t0 = 1.0
```

Create a problem instance:

```
mod = Implicit_Problem(res, y0, yd0, t0)
```

Note

For complex problems, it is recommended to check the available *examples* and the documentation in the problem class, `Implicit_Problem`

. It is also recommended to define your problem as a subclass of `Implicit_Problem`

.

Warning

When subclassing from a problem class, the function for calculating the right-hand-side (for ODEs) must be named *rhs* and in the case with a residual function (for DAEs) it must be named *res*.

Create a solver instance:

```
sim = GLIMDA(mod)
```

Modify (optionally) the solver parameters.

Parameters:

`atol`

Defines the absolute tolerance(s) that is to be used by the solver.`backward`

Specifies if the simulation is done in reverse time.`clock_step`

Specifies if the elapsed time of an integrator step should be timed or not.`display_progress`

This option actives output during the integration in terms of that the current integration is periodically printed to the stdout.`inith`

This determines the initial step-size to be used in the integration.`maxh`

Defines the maximal step-size that is to be used by the solver.`maxord`

Maximum order to be used (1-3).`maxretry`

Defines the maximum number of consecutive number of retries after a convergence failure.`maxsteps`

The maximum number of steps allowed to be taken to reach the final time.`minh`

Defines the minimum step-size that is to be used by the solver.`minord`

Minimum order to be used (1-3).`newt`

Maximum number of Newton iterations.`num_threads`

This options specifies the number of threads to be used for those solvers that supports it.`order`

Determines if GLIMDA should use a variable order method (0) or a fixed order method (1-3).`report_continuously`

This options specifies if the solver should report the solution continuously after steps.`rtol`

Defines the relative tolerance that is to be used by the solver.`store_event_points`

This options specifies if the solver should save additional points at the events, t_e^-, t_e^+.`time_limit`

This option can be used to limit the time of an integration.`verbosity`

This determines the level of the output.
