Detailed Description

template<class T>
class drake::systems::ImplicitEulerIntegrator< T >

A first-order, fully implicit integrator with second order error estimation.

Template Parameters
TThe vector element type, which must be a valid Eigen scalar.

This class uses Drake's -inl.h pattern. When seeing linker errors from this class, please refer to https://drake.mit.edu/cxx_inl.html.

Instantiated templates for the following kinds of T's are provided:

  • double
  • AutoDiffXd

This integrator uses the following update rule:

x(t+h) = x(t) + h f(t+h,x(t+h))

where x are the state variables, h is the integration step size, and f() returns the time derivatives of the state variables. Contrast this update rule to that of an explicit first-order integrator:

x(t+h) = x(t) + h f(t, x(t))

Thus implicit first-order integration must solve a nonlinear system of equations to determine both the state at t+h and the time derivatives of that state at that time. Cast as a nonlinear system of equations, we seek the solution to:

x(t+h) - x(t) - h f(t+h,x(t+h)) = 0

given unknowns x(t+h).

This "implicit Euler" method is known to be L-Stable, meaning both that applying it at a fixed integration step to the "test" equation y(t) = eᵏᵗ yields zero (for k < 0 and t → ∞) and that it is also A-Stable. A-Stability, in turn, means that the method can integrate the linear constant coefficient system dx/dt = Ax at any step size without the solution becoming unstable (growing without bound). The practical effect of L-Stability is that the integrator tends to be stable for any given step size on an arbitrary system of ordinary differential equations. See [Lambert, 1991], Ch. 6 for an approachable discussion on stiff differential equations and L- and A-Stability.

This implementation uses Newton-Raphson (NR) and relies upon the obvious convergence to a solution for g = 0 where g(x(t+h)) ≡ x(t+h) - x(t) - h f(t+h,x(t+h)) as h becomes sufficiently small. It also uses the implicit trapezoid method- fed the result from implicit Euler for (hopefully) faster convergence- to compute the error estimate. General implementational details were gleaned from [Hairer, 1996].
