@F'x Oh, just curious!

comment Getting Integrate to perform numerical integration
So did you use Timing or AbsoluteTiming to figure out how long it took for the code to run?

comment Controlling the time step in NDSolve?
@AlbertRetey Do you think there is a way to see what the Jacobian looks like though?

comment Controlling the time step in NDSolve?
@AlbertRetey sure thing man! No beef! :P It would be great to figure a way out to actually meddle with the internals of mathematica like one can do with say ode15 in MATLAB! Thanks for helping!

comment Controlling the time step in NDSolve?
@AlbertRetey sure. I understand that. But even adaptive time step methods are predicated on some condition. How do I control that condition? I am guessing in this case, its a stiffness-stability criterion that decides the time step. Is there some way I can look at the Jacobian matrix from NDSolve[...]? Anyone?

comment Setting the DifferenceOrder Option
In the name of completion and all that, I was able to reproduce results in this paper by increasing the "MaxStepFraction" to 150. That generated a grid of 151x151 which seemed well and good for the nonlinear partial differential equation as described in the paper..

comment NIntegrate is resetting my variables and not giving me a result?
@SjoerdC.deVries Hmm thats all food for thought. I'll carefully read my code and try to understand your constructive comments in that perspective.

This is the answer. However, I couldn't ever have known of the _?NumericQ thingy! I'll have to look it up. Aah, the trials and tribulations of being a paper and pencil engineer!

@SjoerdC.deVries Oh...you are saying x,y,z are local to NDSolve? It does make sense.. But this has actually worked on this? I am not a mathematician at all neither am I into programming so I don't have your keen eye to say that this is ugly! :)

@rcollyer did that. Still is an ugly mass of text. Boy mathematica sure can be an ugly environment. Anyway...

@R.M Yes, I realize that. I don't know where else I could post the code itself so as to focus on the problem that the code is stricken by here! :(

comment What does MaxStepFraction do?
This makes sense, thank you.
