[I inadvertantly submitted this just now without a subject line.  My
apologies for the double posting!]

CRAN now contains a new package for numerically solving ordinary
differential equations.  The package (odesolve_0.5-3) currently provides an
interface to the solver "LSODA" written by Linda Petzold and Alan
Hindmarsh.  LSODA is an adaptive solver, switching between methods
appropriate for non-stiff and stiff systems as the problem requires.  In
this implementation, the system of ODEs are written as an R function.  A
vector of parameters may be passed to the function, making it relatively
easy to use lsoda in functions to be passed to various R optimizers.
