solving ODEs is pretty standard, but it is also a starting point for
elaborate numerical analysis and tools, especially if you solve large
systems with conserved quantities. Nevertheless, I think some simple ODE
solvers would fit into Boost, libs for numerical root finding and
optimization are also part of it, at least experimentally.
Many libraries for solving ODEs exist in the C/C++ world, but many of
them lack the use of the standard interfaces and containers. This is
really a drawback to languages like Fortran or Python and odeint is one
attempt for easy to use and container-independent ode solver.
