Re: [vox-tech] ODE solvers in C

I must admit I know very little about numerical methods, but I have 
written little Euler method solvers on occasion (albeit in more 
forgiving languages than C).  However, my advisor tells me that I'll 
need to use a method that's good for stiff ODEs.  This doesn't mean much 
to me as my ODE training is woefully inadequate, but he said I should 
use the Gear method.  I was just wondering what the C programmers out 
there use, since I was having trouble finding stuff.  Leave it to Pete 
to write his own solvers... I don't know that I'll go down that road.

Thanks to Shawn for the suggestions.  I'll look into linking Fortran 
code and I'll take a look at NIST.
