Question Stepper for a Rapidly Changing Magnetic Field 

Forum: Fields: Magnetic and Otherwise
Date: 14 Nov, 2013
From: Doris <Doris>

Hello,

     In my understanding, RK4 is the default integration stepper for the magnetic field. I also heard that this method would not work for a rapidly changing magnetic field.

     For example, a track would go through a detector consisting of big chunks of iron and air gaps in between. I guess the magnetic field would change rapidly at every boundary between iron and air. In such cases, which stepper would you recommend to use? And what kind of commands should I use to implement the change?

     Regards,
     Doris
