EXPFIT4 – a FORTRAN program for the numerical solution of systems of nonlinear second-order initial-value problems. (English) Zbl 0927.65099

Summary: We present a FORTRAN program which solves the initial-value problem associated with nonstiff systems of the form \(y''= f(x,y)\). The program is based on a family of exponential-fitted four-step methods. The presented code is particularly suited to solve second-order initial-value problems arising from physics.
