# scipy.integrate.RK23#

class scipy.integrate.RK23(fun, t0, y0, t_bound, max_step=inf, rtol=0.001, atol=1e-06, vectorized=False, first_step=None, **extraneous)[source]#

Explicit Runge-Kutta method of order 3(2).

This uses the Bogacki-Shampine pair of formulas [1]. The error is controlled assuming accuracy of the second-order method, but steps are taken using the third-order accurate formula (local extrapolation is done). A cubic Hermite polynomial is used for the dense output.

Can be applied in the complex domain.

Parameters:
funcallable

Right-hand side of the system. The calling signature is `fun(t, y)`. Here `t` is a scalar and there are two options for ndarray `y`. It can either have shape (n,), then `fun` must return array_like with shape (n,). Or alternatively it can have shape (n, k), then `fun` must return array_like with shape (n, k), i.e. each column corresponds to a single column in `y`. The choice between the two options is determined by vectorized argument (see below).

t0float

Initial time.

y0array_like, shape (n,)

Initial state.

t_boundfloat

Boundary time - the integration won’t continue beyond it. It also determines the direction of the integration.

first_stepfloat or None, optional

Initial step size. Default is `None` which means that the algorithm should choose.

max_stepfloat, optional

Maximum allowed step size. Default is np.inf, i.e., the step size is not bounded and determined solely by the solver.

rtol, atolfloat and array_like, optional

Relative and absolute tolerances. The solver keeps the local error estimates less than `atol + rtol * abs(y)`. Here rtol controls a relative accuracy (number of correct digits), while atol controls absolute accuracy (number of correct decimal places). To achieve the desired rtol, set atol to be smaller than the smallest value that can be expected from `rtol * abs(y)` so that rtol dominates the allowable error. If atol is larger than `rtol * abs(y)` the number of correct digits is not guaranteed. Conversely, to achieve the desired atol set rtol such that `rtol * abs(y)` is always smaller than atol. If components of y have different scales, it might be beneficial to set different atol values for different components by passing array_like with shape (n,) for atol. Default values are 1e-3 for rtol and 1e-6 for atol.

vectorizedbool, optional

Whether fun is implemented in a vectorized fashion. Default is False.
