XPPAUT is a general numerical tool for simulating, animating, and analyzing dynamical systems. These can range from
- discrete finite state models (e.g., McCulloch-Pitts neurons) to
- stochastic Markov models, to
- discretization of partial differential equations and integro-differential equations.
The program evolved from a DOS program that was originally written so that John Rinzel and Bard Ermentrout could easily illustrate the dynamics of a simple model for an excitable membrane. The DOS program, PHASEPLANE, became a commercial project and was used for many years by a number of patient folks.
