Sundials.jl is a Julia package that interfaces to the Sundials library. Sundials (the C library and this package) provides the following:
y' = f(t,y,p), y(t0) = y0(p), where
pis a set of parameters.
F(t,y,y',p) = 0, y(t0) = y0(p), y'(t0) = y0'(p)
F(u) = 0
Note that CVODES and IDAS contain all functions provided by CVODE and IDA (for integration
without sensitivity analysis). If you need to use the latter, you can set
deps/build.jl and (re)build the package.
Within Julia, use the package manager:
This should download and install the Sundials libraries and register the package. On Windows precompiled binaries are used, while on Unix and OSX Sundials is built from its sources (provided the necessary tools are available). If you have Sundials already installed, make sure that Julia can find it, e.g., via
before you install the package. Downloading and/or re-building of the library can be triggered by
if anything goes wrong.
To test the installation use

This package closely follows the Sundials C API. At a slightly higher
level, many (but not all) Sundials.jl functions support passing Julia
Arrays) instead of Sundials objects (like
for examples of how the higher-level interfacing works.
The Julia package Clang.jl was used to wrap Sundials. This directly uses Sundials' headers sort-of like SWIG. This is great work by Isaiah--it didn't take me much work to package a pretty complete interface to Sundials. For the wrapping code, see src/wrap_sundials.jl.
Because of Clang.jl, Sundials.jl provides good coverage of the Sundials library (the serial version).
idasol are provided as high-level,
very simple functions. Note that the latter two functions were previously
ida. Here is an example for
using Sundials function f(t, y, ydot) ydot = -0.04*y + 1.0e4*y*y ydot = 3.0e7*y*y ydot = -ydot - ydot end t = [0.0; 4 * logspace(-1., 7., 9)] res = Sundials.cvode(f, [1.0, 0.0, 0.0], t)

between the two provided integration options:
:BDF for a Backwards Differentiation
Formula method and
:Adams for an Adams-Moulton method. There are two supported
idasol. For more
