SOLUTIONS OF SYSTEMS OF DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS
Abstract
FOLDER is a routine whose purpose is to solve a system of linear differential equations on the IBM 650 computer which is equipped with index accumulators and floatingpoint hardware. A system of K n/sup th/order differential equations which is represented by a system of K x n firstorder differential equations and coded in a prescribed manner is solved numerically by the methods of Milne and/or RungeKutta. Flexible operating modes are made possible by the user's designtion of parameters. Output data and format are under complete control of the user. (auth)

Similarity solutions of systems of partial differential equations using MACSYMA
A code has been written to use the algebraic computer system MACSYMA to generate systematically the infinitesimal similarity groups corresponding to systems of quasilinear partial differential equations. The infinitesimal similarity groups can be used to find exact solutions of the partial differential equations. In an example from fluid mechanics the similarity method using the computer code reproduces immediately a solution obtained from dimensional analysis. 
Generalized conjugate gradient method for the numerical solution of elliptic partial differential equations. [Solution of sparse, symmetric, positivedefinite systems of linear equations arising from discretization of boundaryvalue problems for elliptic partial differential equations]
A generalized conjugate gradient method is considered for solving sparse, symmetric, positivedefinite systems of linear equations, principally those arising from the discretization of boundary value problems for elliptic partial differential equations. The method is based on splitting off from the original coefficient matrix a symmetric, positivedefinite one which corresponds to a more easily solvable system of equations, and then accelerating the associated iteration by using conjugate gradients. Optimality and convergence properties are presented, and the relation to other methods is discussed. Several splittings for which the method seems particularly effective are also discussed; and for some, numerical examples are given.more » 
Solution of blocktridiagonal systems of linear algebraic equations. [BT and BTMS with subroutines DECBT and SOLBT, for solving systems of linear algebraic equations arising in numerical solution of partial differential equations; in FORTRAN for CDC 7600 computer]
The solution of linear systems with a blocktridiagonal structure is a very common requirement in many applications. This report describes two Fortran packages for solving such systems. The first is for the case when all the relevant blocks in the coefficient matrix can be stored at once. The second is for the case when they cannot; instead the equations are generated, one blockrow at a time, by a usersupplied subroutine. The blocks are assumed to be full, and partial pivoting is done within blockrows only. 
Generalized conjugate gradient method for nonsymmetric systems of linear equations. [Solution of systems of linear equations such as arise in solution of elliptic partial differential equations]
A generalized conjugate gradient method is considered for solving systems of linear equations having nonsymmetric coefficient matrices with positivedefinite symmetric part. The method is based on splitting the matrix into its symmetric and skewsymmetric parts, and then accelerating the associated iteration by using conjugate gradients; the method simplifies in this case, as only one of the two usual parameters is required. The method is most effective for cases in which the symmetric part of the matrix corresponds to an easily solvable system of equations. Convergence properties are discussed, as well as an application to the numerical solution of elliptic partialmore »
