Hello Karsten,

I have a comment: I think that it would be very beneficial to discuss
specific, modern applications of your odeint library on the
documentation pages, preferably the applications for which you
originally wrote the library.

I feel as Paul does that differential equations are a tool for very
specific problems, and probably few Boosters have the opportunity to
work on applications that use ODEs. Consequently, I think that the
lack of immediate feedback is more due to a lack of experience with
ODE solving rather than a feeling that ODEs are unimportant (they're

I am very interested to see where this goes because you never know
when that perfect use for a high-quality, generic ODE integration
library will come along.

Please keep the list informed.
