i'd say that the domain which covers this lib is too specific for
the boost collection
on the other hand it's an interesting idea to establish a context for
solving odes
however there are VERY broad range of specific thing you should think
anyway good luck with your initiative

i bet you are already familiar with the "numerical recipes", an
outstanding book!
if not -- you sertainly should
