Speed up NDSolve compared to Python (calls to LSODA)

I migrated a numerical model code from Python to Mathematica and am surprised how much faster the Python version runs. Profiling of the Python version tells me that it is about 100 times faster (120 ...

Plotting with Precision

Suppose we plot Plot[Exp[x] Exp[-x], {x, 0, 1000}] This equals $1$, as expected, until around $x = 750$ where the curve drops sharply to $0$. Clearly this is due ...

How to check for underflow, and find a constant to correct it?

In a programme I'm running, at a certain point there's a multipplication of variables that gives underflow... For example $c=c_1\times c_2$. Is there anyway to check if that multiplication gives ...

General:: Exp[-717.401] is too small to represent as a normalized machine number; precision may be lost

I am solving pde. For the post processing bvp, there is solution given in output which is the solution from mathematica version 10.0.1. Output from above in mathematica 10.0.1 is, But when the similar ...

What Are the Changes in Working Precision in NIntegrate From Mathematica 10.2 to 11.3?

I have a simulation code I developed in Mathematica 10.2. I use Nintegrate to calculate some values. It works fine and each run takes about 170s. However When I run it in my university's computer (...

Can I force Mathematica to use machine precision? [duplicate]

Some built-in functions (like Exp) give an arbitrary precision result, even when the argument is a machine precision number. Example: ...

Generalizing technique to handle General::munfl error?

In contrast to earlier versions of Mathematica, in versions 11.3 and later Mathematica no longer switches to arbitrary precision when it detects a MachineNumber underflow. While this behavior is ...

Set Underflow precision in Mathematica 12 same as version 11.x [duplicate]

It seems like Mathematica version 12 sets arbitrary underflow precision depending on the function, but I would like the underflow precision to be same as what was for previous version of Mathematica ...
