Paper Abstract

We explain why one of our favorite particle flows (method #18) requires special care for numerical integration. The root cause is stiffness of the flow. This can be mitigated with a small increase in computational complexity (a factor of three). There are many ways to do this, but some are much better than others. In particular, one can use a smaller step size for numerical integration, or use principal coordinates, or use a stiff ODE solver or an adaptive ODE solver or other methods. We show that the best methods are contrary to the standard advice given in textbooks.
