# decic

Compute consistent initial conditions for `ode15i`

## Syntax

## Description

`[`

uses `y0_new`

,`yp0_new`

]
= decic(`odefun`

,`t0`

,`y0`

,`fixed_y0`

,`yp0`

,`fixed_yp0`

)`y0`

and `yp0`

as
guesses for the initial conditions of the fully implicit function `odefun`

,
holds the components specified by `fixed_y0`

and `fixed_yp0`

as
fixed, then computes values for the nonfixed components. The result
is a complete set of consistent initial conditions. The new values `yo_new`

and `yp0_new`

satisfy ```
odefun(t0,y0_new,yp0_new)
= 0
```

and are suitable to be used as initial conditions with `ode15i`

.

## Tips

The

`ihb1dae`

and`iburgersode`

example files use`decic`

to compute consistent initial conditions before solving with`ode15i`

. Type`edit ihb1dae`

or`edit iburgersode`

to view the code.You can additionally use

`decic`

to compute consistent initial conditions for DAEs solved by`ode15s`

or`ode23t`

. To do this, follow these steps.Rewrite the system of equations in fully implicit form

`f(t,y,y') = 0`

.Call

`decic`

to compute consistent initial conditions for the equations.Specify

`y0_new`

as the initial condition in the call to the solver, and specify`yp_new`

as the value of the`InitialSlope`

option of`odeset`

.
