comment Implementation of a matrix formula
@J.M. Oh, you're right, row.Transpose[pts, {1, 3, 2}].col can be further simplified to col.(row.pts) in this case, the speed improvement is negligible though. (Transpose is so fast. )

comment Why is ListPlot[] so slow for coordinate pairs? Can we speed it up?
@AlbertRetey Your guess is right, at least according to the AbsoluteTime[]-t measurement, but this leads to another problem, that is, the AbsoluteTime[]-t measurement seems to be inaccurate, too, if my sense of time is correct! (Maybe I should pinch a stopwatch?)

@Kuba Yeah, I noticed it just now, too. Quite surprising I should say, I thought ListPlot is just a Graphics generator!

comment Problem with solving an optimal control system with Shooting Method
Interesting…I'd like to mention that, v10 seems to be necessary to solve the equation with the simpler solution, in v9.0.1 and v8.0.4 it failed. And the Expand seems to be redundant, at least according to my test on Wolfram Cloud. BTW, how did you find the good initial guess for the not-that-simple solution?

comment How to handle a special Neumann-like boundary condition in NDSolve?
@LCFactorization ?NumericQ is necessary to suppress the warning, if you don't mind the warning, simply use solL[xl_]. There're many examples for the usage of ?NumericQ in this site, you can have a search.

comment How to handle a special Neumann-like boundary condition in NDSolve?
@LCFactorization It's just derivative symbol, when xL gets a numeric value, solL[xl] will evaluate to a InterpolatingFunction. As to the reading material part, have you ever read Leonid Shifrin's excellent book? Here's the unfinished Chinese edition: tieba.baidu.com/p/3230448463

comment How to handle a special Neumann-like boundary condition in NDSolve?
@LCFactorization See my edit. If you still have difficulty in understanding, evaluate solL[14] alone and check the output. Notice that precisely speaking, $x_0$ is not undetermined, but to be determined.
