## sundials

### 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 version 2.4.0.

### Library procedures

#### IDA solver interface

<procedure>(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</procedure>

Creates 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.

*[procedure]*

`(ida-destroy-solver IDA-SOLVER)`

Deallocates the memory associated with the given solver.

*[procedure]*

`(ida-solve IDA-SOLVER T)`

Integrates 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.

*[procedure]*

`(ida-yy IDA-SOLVER)`

Returns the vector of current state values of the system.

*[procedure]*

`(ida-yp IDA-SOLVER)`

Returns the vector of current state derivative values of the system.

*[procedure]*

`(ida-get-last-order IDA-SOLVER)`

Returns the order used during the last solver step.

*[procedure]*

`(ida-get-last-step IDA-SOLVER)`

Returns the steps size used during the last solver step.

*[procedure]*

`(ida-get-num-steps IDA-SOLVER)`

Returns the cumulative number of steps taken by the solver.
