Abstract:

The principal result of this report is a demonstration that systems of ordinary differential equations of engineering that are too large for the available computers can be solved by a principle of decomposition. It is shown that the systems of resulting subproblems are members of a larger class of problems. The properties of this class are investigated and conditions stated under which the solutions of the subproblems converge to those of the original problem. A measure of the interaction between the subproblems is suggested for a subsequent investigation. Author
