A general method of systematic interval computation for numerical integration of initial value problems


A procedure is given for continuously computing and monitoring the step size to be used by a self-starting, pth-order numerical integration method to solve an initial value problem. The procedure uses an estimate of the truncation error to calculate the step size.
