A `StateSpace`

is an affine space where the associated vector space
has scalars that are instances of `Fractional`

.
If p is an instance of `StateSpace`

, then the associated vectorspace
`Diff`

p is intended to represent the space of (time) derivatives
of paths in p.

`StateSpace`

is very similar to Conal Elliott's `AffineSpace`

.

class (VectorSpace (Diff p), Fractional (Scalar (Diff p))) => StateSpace p whereSource

An instance of `StateSpace`

is a data type that can serve as the state
of some system. Alternatively, a `StateSpace`

is a collection of dependent
variables for a differential equation.
A `StateSpace`

has an associated vector space for the (time) derivatives
of the state. The associated vector space is a linearized version of
the `StateSpace`

.

Point minus vector

type Time p = Scalar (Diff p)Source

The scalars of the associated vector space can be thought of as time intervals.

type DifferentialEquation state = state -> Diff stateSource

A differential equation expresses how the dependent variables (state) change with the independent variable (time). A differential equation is specified by giving the (time) derivative of the state as a function of the state. The (time) derivative of a state is an element of the associated vector space.

type InitialValueProblem state = (DifferentialEquation state, state)Source

An initial value problem is a differential equation along with an initial state.

type EvolutionMethod stateSource

= DifferentialEquation state | differential equation |

-> Time state | time interval |

-> state | initial state |

-> state | evolved state |

An evolution method is a way of approximating the state after advancing a finite interval in the independent variable (time) from a given state.

type SolutionMethod state = InitialValueProblem state -> [state]Source

A (numerical) solution method is a way of converting an initial value problem into a list of states (a solution). The list of states need not be equally spaced in time.

stepSolution :: EvolutionMethod state -> Time state -> SolutionMethod stateSource

Given an evolution method and a time step, return the solution method which applies the evolution method repeatedly with with given time step. The solution method returned will produce an infinite list of states.

eulerMethod :: StateSpace state => EvolutionMethod stateSource

The Euler method is the simplest evolution method. It increments the state by the derivative times the time step.
