Phylogenetics Relationships of groups of organisms as reflected by their evolutionary history
Stiff differential equations Coupled differential equations that include some terms that lead to rapid variations; they must be handled with special solvers to avoid instabilities
Symplectic integrators Discretizations that have a Hamiltonian structure analogous to that of the dynamics being approximated
