Abstract:

The Eclectic Simulator Program ESP is a system a precompiler plus a collection of subroutines that permits the fast, easy solution of ordinary differential equations. Any user with a general knowledge of FORTRAN can utilize ESPs many labor-saving devices to code a problem with minimal effort. Special ESP features permit translation of engineering blocks, discontinuities, and hysteresis patterns directly into computer code, and the use of WHELP in conjunction with ESP facilitates efficient coding of matrix algebra equations. Simple input cards enable the user to directly control solution and timing accuracy and to specify or change run times, initial conditions, and various other parameters easily when making multiple or stacked runs. Finally, ESP allows the user to select from a wide variety of output options. This manual is intended to be both a learning tool for the novice and a detailed reference for the experienced user.
