Magnolia has been designed for modeling continuous and hybrid discrete/continuous systems and processes that can be represented by systems of ordinary differential equations and differential algebraic equations.  Solution of these equations is performed numerically (as opposed to symbolically), allowing for a wide variety of problem types and complexities.  While Magnolia is not designed to solve partial differential equations, simple PDE problems can be encoded in Magnolia using finite-difference approaches.


“Mathematical modeling” can mean many things. How does Magnolia support mathematical modeling?
