Dear all,

Now,I research to solve the equation of motion by using octave.
The following is the example of equations.

(dx/dt)''=F - (dx/dt)'

#"F" is the externalforce which is measured by experiment.This value is
refered to data of experiment every time.

I came up with the program to solve this equation as follows.
But,this program does not seem to work correctly.

F=rand(5,1);    # Now, I give randam "F"
function dx = ex(x,t)
        global n;
        dx(1) = F(n+1,1)-x(1);
        dx(2) = x(1);

global n;
v=0;    # set initial value
X=0;    # set initial value
for n=0:4
        x0 = [v;X]      # initial value
        t = linspace(n,n+1,2)
        y = lsode("ex",x0,t)
        v=(2,1)         # new initial value
        X=(2,2)         # new initial value

I would be very happy if you have any idea on it and let me know
Thanks in advance,
