Delay Differential Equations
Delay differential equations contain terms whose value depends on the solution at prior
times. The time delays can be constant, time-dependent, or state-dependent, and the choice of
the solver function (
ddensd) depends on the type of delays in the equation. Typically the
time delay relates the current value of the derivative to the value of the solution at some
prior time, but in the case of a neutral equation it can depend on the
value of the derivative at prior times. Since the equations depend on the solution at prior
times, it is necessary to provide a history function that conveys the value of the solution
before the initial time t0. For more information, see Solving Delay Differential Equations.
