timelags {deSolve}R Documentation

Time Lagged Values of State Variables and Derivatives.

Description

Functions lagvalue and lagderiv provide access to past (lagged) values of state variables and derivatives.

They are to be used with function dede, to solve delay differential equations.

Usage

lagvalue(t, nr)
lagderiv(t, nr)

Arguments

t

the time for which the lagged value is wanted; this should be no larger than the current simulation time and no smaller than the initial simulation time.

nr

the number of the lagged value; if NULL then all state variables or derivatives are returned.

Details

The lagvalue and lagderiv can only be called during the integration, the lagged time should not be smaller than the initial simulation time, nor should it be larger than the current simulation time.

Cubic Hermite interpolation is used to obtain an accurate interpolant at the requested lagged time.

Value

a scalar (or vector) with the lagged value(s).
