# SUNDIALS: SUite of Nonlinear and DIfferential/ALgebraic equation Solvers #

SUNDIALS is a family of software packages implemented with the goal of
providing robust time integrators and nonlinear solvers that can easily be
incorporated into existing simulation codes. The primary design goals are to
require minimal information from the user, allow users to easily supply their
own data structures underneath the packages, and allow for easy incorporation
of usersupplied linear solvers and preconditioners. The various packages share
many subordinate modules and are organized as a family with a directory
structure that exploits sharing common functionality.
The SUNDIALS suite consists of the following packages:
* ARKODE  for integration of stiff and nonstiff ordinary differential equation
systems (ODEs) of the form
``` M y' = fe(t,y) + fi(t,y), y(t0) = y0 ```
* CVODE  for integration of stiff and nonstiff ordinary differential equation
systems (ODEs) of the form
``` y' = f(t,y), y(t0) = y0 ```
* CVODES  for integration and sensitivity analysis (forward and adjoint) of
ordinary differential equation systems (ODEs) of the form
``` y' = f(t,y,p), y(t0) = y0(p) ```
* IDA  for integration of differentialalgebraic equation systems (DAEs) of
the form
``` F(t,y,y') = 0, y(t0) = y0, y'(t0) = y0' ```
* IDAS  for integration and sensitivity analysis (forward and adjoint) of
differentialalgebraic equation systems (DAEs) of the form
``` F(t,y,y',p) = 0, y(t0) = y0(p), y'(t0) = y0'(p) ```
* KINSOL  for solution of nonlinear algebraic systems of the form
``` F(u) = 0 ```
## Installation ##
For installation directions see the INSTALL_GUIDE.pdf file or the installation
chapter in any of the package user guides.
Warning to users who receive more than one of the individual packages at
different times: Mixing old and new versions of SUNDIALS may fail. To avoid
such failures, obtain all desired package at the same time.
## Documentation ##
Full user guides for SUNDIALS packages are provided in the doc directory along
with documentation for example programs.
## Support ##
A list of Frequently Asked Questions on build and installation procedures as
well as common usage issues is available on the SUNDIALS [FAQ](https://computation.llnl.gov/projects/sundials/faq).
For dealing with systems with unphysical solutions or discontinuities see the
SUNDIALS [usage notes](https://computation.llnl.gov/projects/sundials/usagenotes).
If you have a question not covered in the FAQ or usage notes, please submit
your question to the SUNDIALS [mailing list](https://computation.llnl.gov/projects/sundials/mailinglist).
