Working Stiff

December 16, 2015
By

After a challenging development process we are happy to announce that Stan finally supports stiff ODE systems, removing one of the key obstacles in fields such as pharmacometrics and ecology.  For the experts, we’ve incorporated CVODE 2.8.2 into Stan and exposed the backward-differentiation formula solver using Newton iterations and a banded Jacobian computed exactly using our autodiff.
