The function may be called by the names: d02psc or nag_ode_ivp_rkts_interp.
d02psc and its associated functions (d02pfc,d02pqc,d02prc,d02ptcandd02puc) solve the initial value problem for a first-order system of ordinary differential equations. The functions, based on Runge–Kutta methods and derived from RKSUITE (see Brankin et al. (1991)), integrate
where is the vector of solution components and is the independent variable.
d02pfc computes the solution at the end of an integration step. Using the information computed on that step d02psc computes the solution by interpolation at any point on that step. It cannot be used if was specified in the call to setup function d02pqc.

5: – Nag_Comm *
Pointer to structure of type Nag_Comm; the following members are relevant to f.
user – double *

p – Pointer
The type Pointer will be void *. Before calling d02psc you may allocate memory and initialize these pointers with various quantities for use by f when called from d02psc (see Section 3.1.1 in the Introduction to the NAG Library CL Interface).
Note:f should not return floating-point NaN (Not a Number) or infinity values, since these are not handled by d02psc. If your code inadvertently does return any NaNs or infinities, d02psc is likely to produce unexpected results.

8Parallelism and Performance
Background information to multithreading can be found in the Multithreading documentation.
d02psc makes calls to BLAS and/or LAPACK routines, which may be threaded within the vendor library used by this implementation. Consult the documentation for the vendor library for further information.
Please consult the X06 Chapter Introduction for information on how to control and interrogate the OpenMP environment used within this function. Please also consult the Users' Note for your implementation for any additional implementation-specific information.
This example solves the equation
over the range with initial conditions and . Relative error control is used with threshold values of for each solution component. d02pfc is used to integrate the problem one step at a time and d02psc is used to compute the first component of the solution and its derivative at intervals of length across the range whenever these points lie in one of those integration steps. A low order Runge–Kutta method () is also used with tolerances and in turn so that solutions may be compared.
