Graphically explore systems of differential equations

This software allows to study the phase plane of a system of autonomous, possibly nonlinear, differential equations. Numerical solutions can be obtained from a given initial condition. Results can be exported for further processing. Press-quality PDF plots can be obtained. Systems an parameters can be saved in preset files for quick later re-usage.

This is the first free native MacOs X software of this kind. It allows to quickly visualize the phase plane of ODEs, one of the key tasks in the qualitative study of nonlinear differential equations. Being completely free, this software is available for students or other classes of users who cannot afford commercial packages such as Mathematica or Matlab.

From students, to teachers, up to researchers needing a simple tool for studying nonlinear differential equations.
