### Description

The Chicken `sundials` library provides bindings to the solvers from the SUNDIALS library. SUNDIALS (SUite of Nonlinear and DIfferential/ALgebraic equation Solvers) is a collection of solvers for systems of ordinary differential equations and differential-algebraic equations.

The Chicken `sundials` library provides interfaces to the CVODE and IDA solvers and has been tested with SUNDIALS versions 2.4.0 and 2.5.0.

### Library procedures

#### IDA solver interface

`(ida-create-solver TSTART TSTOP VARIABLES DERIVATIVES RESIDUAL-MAIN [RESIDUAL-INIT] [RESIDUAL-EVENT] [EVENTS] [ALG-OR-DIFF] [SUPPRESS] [IC] [USER-DATA] [RELTOL] [ABSTOL]) => IDA-SOLVER`procedureCreates and initializes an object representing a problem to be solved with the IDA solver.

Arguments

`TSTART`and`TSTOP`must be real numbers that represent the beginning and end of the independent variable range.Arguments

`VARIABLES`and`DERIVATIVES`must be SRFI-4`f64vector`objects that hold respectively the initial values and derivatives of the system variables.Argument

`RESIDUAL-MAIN`is used to compute the residual function`F`and must be a procedure of the following form:(LAMBDA T YY YP DATA)

or

(LAMBDA T YY YP)

depending on whether the

`USER-DATA`optional argument is set, where`T`- real-valued independent variable
`YY`- SRFI-4
`f64vector`with current variable values `YP`- SRFI-4
`f64vector`with current variable derivatives `DATA`- is a user data object (if set)

This procedure must return a SRFI-4

`f64vector`containing the residual vector.Optional keyword argument

`RESIDUAL-EVENT`must be a procedure of the same form as`RESIDUAL-MAIN`, which computes a rootfinding problem to be solved during the integration of the system. It is set only if argument`EVENTS`is given.Optional keyword argument

`EVENTS`is an SRFI-4`s32vector`that is used for storage of root finding solutions. It must be given if`RESIDUAL-EVENT`is given.Optional keyword argument

`ALG-OR-DIFF`must be an SRFI-4`s32vector`which indicates the algebraic and differential variables in the system. A value of 1 indiciates differential variable, and a value of 0 indicates an algebraic one. This is required if the`SUPPRESS`argument is given and true.Optional keyword argument

`SUPPRESS`is a boolean flag that indicates whether algebraic variables must be suppressed in the local error test. If it is true (suppress), then the argument`ALG-OR-DIFF`must be given.Optional keyword argument

`IC`is a boolean flag that indicates whether the solver must calculate consistent initial conditions, or whether it must use the initial conditions given by`VARIABLES`.Optional keyword argument

`USER-DATA`is an object that will be passed as an additional argument to the residual functions.Optional keyword arguments

`RELTOL`and`ABSTOL`specify relative and absolute error tolerance, respectively. These both default to 1e-4.

`ida-reinit-solver``IDA-SOLVER``T0``Y0``YP0`procedureRe-initializes IDA for the solution of a problem.

`ida-destroy-solver``IDA-SOLVER`procedureDeallocates the memory associated with the given solver.

`ida-solve``IDA-SOLVER``T`procedureIntegrates the system over an interval in the independent variable. This procedure returns either when the given

`T`is reached, or when a root is found.

`ida-yy``IDA-SOLVER`procedureReturns the vector of current state values of the system.

`ida-yp``IDA-SOLVER`procedureReturns the vector of current state derivative values of the system.

`ida-get-last-order``IDA-SOLVER`procedureReturns the order used during the last solver step.

`ida-get-last-step``IDA-SOLVER`procedureReturns the steps size used during the last solver step.

`ida-get-num-steps``IDA-SOLVER`procedureReturns the cumulative number of steps taken by the solver.

#### CVODE solver interface

`(cvode-create-solver TSTART TSTOP VARIABLES RHS-FN [LMM] [ITER] [EWT-FN] [EVENT-FN] [EVENTS] [USER-DATA] [RELTOL] [ABSTOL]) => CVODE-SOLVER`procedureCreates and initializes an object representing a problem to be solved with the CVODE solver.

Arguments

`TSTART`and`TSTOP`must be real numbers that represent the beginning and end of the independent variable range.Arguments

`VARIABLES`must be a SRFI-4`f64vector`object that holds the initial values of the system variables.Argument

`RHS-FN`is used to compute the right-hand side of the equations, and must be a procedure of the following form:(LAMBDA T YY DATA)

or

(LAMBDA T YY)

depending on whether the

`USER-DATA`optional argument is set, where`T`- real-valued independent variable
`YY`- SRFI-4
`f64vector`with current variable values `DATA`- is a user data object (if set)

This procedure must return a SRFI-4

`f64vector`containing the residual vector.Optional keyword argument

`EWT-FN`must be a procedure of the same form as`(LAMBDA YY)`, which computes error weights for the system variables, and which can be used in place of relative and absolute error tolerance.Optional keyword argument

`EVENT-FN`must be a procedure of the same form as`RHS-FN`, which computes a rootfinding problem to be solved during the integration of the system. It is set only if argument`EVENTS`is given.Optional keyword argument

`EVENTS`is an SRFI-4`s32vector`that is used for storage of root finding solutions. It must be given if`EVENT-FN`is given.Optional keyword argument

`LMM`specifies the linear multistep method to be used and can be one of`cvode-lmm/adams`(default) or`cvode-lmm/bdf`.`cvode-lmm/bdf`is recommended for stiff problems.Optional keyword argument

`ITER`specifies the iteration type to be used and can be one of`cvode-iter/functional`(default) or`cvode-iter/newton`.`cvode-iter/newton`is recommended for stiff problems.Optional keyword argument

`USER-DATA`is an object that will be passed as an additional argument to the residual functions.Optional keyword arguments

`RELTOL`and`ABSTOL`specify relative and absolute error tolerance, respectively. These both default to 1e-4. They are only set of`EWT-FN`is not specified.

`cvode-reinit-solver``CVODE-SOLVER``T0``Y0``YP0`procedureRe-initializes CVODE for the solution of a problem.

`cvode-destroy-solver``CVODE-SOLVER`procedureDeallocates the memory associated with the given solver.

`cvode-solve``CVODE-SOLVER``T`procedureIntegrates the system over an interval in the independent variable. This procedure returns either when the given

`T`is reached, or when a root is found.

`cvode-yy``CVODE-SOLVER`procedureReturns the vector of current state values of the system.
