    Hello,
    I hope you'll forgive a completely non-Fortran question. I have been
    unable to find useful information with Google. Does anyone know an
    online reference that explains when Runge-Kutta is the best way to
    solve an ODE and when the Bulirsch–Stoer works best?
    All I can find is pages explaining how they work, but nothing that
    compares them.
    .
    The algorithm Bulirsch–Stoer if far more complicated than Runge-Kutta.
    Look in Numerical Recipes in C for the former.

    I remember reading about Bulirsch–Stoer in Numerical Recipes (the first edition in fortran, not the C version a decade later). The authors were
    big proponents of the method.
