Thanks to the work by Thomas Petzoldt, Karsten Rinke, Karline Soetaert and R. Woodrow Setzer it is really straight forward to model and analyse dynamical systems in R with their
I will give a brief overview of the functionality using a predator-prey model as an example.
For a further example of a dynamical system with
simecol see my post about the Hodgkin-Huxley model, which describes the action potential of a giant squid axon.
I shouldn't forget to mention the other talks tonight as well:
