Hi there,

I am currently trying to get MatCont up and running. I've done the two tutorials that were available, they were a big help in getting started.

I am working on implementing a 5-dim system, for which I have already done a bifurcation analysis with the aid of some pretty sloppy code. So now I am trying to do the analysis with MatCont (plus I want to do some additional things that I could not code myself). I am running matlab 7.5.0 and matcont 2.4 on windows xp.

My problem is this: I do a simulation, that runs till I am certain that the system is in a stable equilibrium (that I have also confirmed from my own code). Then I choose these values as initial values and set them as

1) an equilibrium point. When I do the continuation I get the "No convergence at x0" message.

2) I set them as Limit Cycle (I know that there is an unstable limit cycle surrounding the equilibrium). In this case I get a message that says "Undefined function or variable "v" " .. I have no variable or function called "v" in my system. I have however looked in the limitcycle.m file in the LimitCycle directory, and here I found a function called "v" which matlab complained was never used.

Any comments will be greatly appreciated, as the work is intended for an upcoming article.

Thanks!

Kenneth
