Nature of problem:
The numerical analysis of continuous-time nonlinear dynamical systems often requires the computation of a large number of solutions of the system, for varying parameter sets, and the subsequent classification of the steady state solution.

Solution method:
This library provides a convenient interface to the library CVODE for the integration of sets of differential equations and at the same time implements all the machinery required for integrating and classifying the behaviour of the system for varying parameter sets and initial conditions. A high-level Python interface makes the usage of the library amenable also to users who are not familiar with the C/C++ programming languages.
