Abstract : The report is intended to serve as a self-teaching and working manual for the MIMIC computer program that provides digital solutions on an IBM 7090(7094) computer for systems of ordinary differential equations. MIMIC is the successor to MIDAS (Modified Integration Digital Analog Simulator). It is considerably more powerful, versatile and efficient while retaining the basic simplicity of its predecessor. The program is intended for a wide range of users, from the engineer with no prior knowledge of digital programming to the sophisticated digital programmer faced with the requirement for obtaining solutions to mathematical problems of this type. The manual contains complete instructions for reducing the given equations to MIMIC language, handling imput and output of data, and detailed explanations - profusely illustrated by examples - of the use of the basic MIMIC functions. Appendices contain a tabulation of all standard MIMIC functions in a compact summary form, five (5) completely solved sample problems, and a description of some aspects of the MIMIC processor.
