rODE: Ordinary Differential Equation (ODE) Solvers Written in R Using S4 Classes

Show physics, math and engineering students how an ODE solver is made and how effective classes can be for the construction of the equations that describe natural phenomena. Inspiration for this work comes from the book on "Computer Simulations in Physics" by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik, and Wolfgang Christian. Book link: <>.
