The package CONVODE is written in REDUCE in order to solve ordinary differential equations (ODE), partial differential equations (PDE), systems and so on...
The package CONVODE may be used via E-mail.
The idea is very simple. You write a small file with the relevant data and send it to:
(If your mailing system has an automatic "Header and signature", remove it before sending your mail.)
After a few minutes, you will receive a New-mail from CONVODE.
This mail not only contains the solution, but also a full description of the way followed by CONVODE to provide this solution.
As you will see, CONVODE is searching for a property of the submitted equation allowing its integration and so on and so on....
For details about the data, see the web page: http://www.physique.fundp.ac.be/administration/convode.html
Here after I have written an example of file for solving an ODE. Send this file to the above address of CONVODE and wait for a "new mail from CONVODE".
In this example, the unknown is Y (depending of X), the independant variable is X and the equation to be solved is typed in the list L1. (REDUCE syntax of course)
