A Calculus-level Computer Language is a huge step from all the Algebraic based languages; e.g. Fortran, Basic, Algol, C, Mathematica, etc. A user states their equations, adds 10 or 20 other lines of code, and runs the code. When all the typos are fixed, a run will provide a solution. Change initial conditions and re-run, does solver still converge to same point? Once satisfied with this solver, try another solver. Does this solver’s solutions agree with last? Within an hour or two, most problems will be solved. Now a user will have some feelings on, ‘How good is the math model?’ All this without any Numerical Methods coding!!!
