20110721 17:23:46 +0100  answered a question  sagenb no login needed? I believe you can launch the notebook with 'notebook(require_login=False)' to achieve that effect. I know it works locally, but I only assume that it's therefore accessible by anyone with access to it over the network.

20110720 20:44:36 +0100  asked a question  Solving a System of Differential Equations I am attempting to solve and graph the solution to an initial value problem containing a system of differential equations. If I am remembering calculus correctly, its properties (nonlinear, ordinary, no explicit appearance of the independent variable time) classify it as a 'timeinvariant autonomous system'. I want to model a situation in which a microorganism in a bioreactor at some concentration 'X' is growing exponentially 'dX/dt = u*X' by consuming a substrate at some concentration 'S'. Substrate consumption 'dS/dt' and microorganism growth rate 'dX/dt' are related by a constant representing the yield of biomass on substrate, Y. If I stop here and leave the specific growth rate 'u' a constant, I can evaluate this just fine with desolve_system(): The problems start when I make 'u' (specific growth rate) a function of 'S' (substrate concentration): I make the assumption that this must be evaluated numerically, and switch to desolve_system_rk4(). I get an "Error executing code in Maxima", which also states "in definition f_rk_4, found bad argument 'X(t)" Where am I going wrong? Can I use desolve_system_rk4() to evaluate this system, and I'm just making a syntax error? Thank you for your patience  I just started using SAGE yesterday.
