the given order.

abstract boolean 
getIsThreadSafe()

multiple threads simultaneously.

int[] 
getOrders()
Gets the orders of the differential equations in the differential equations.

protected void 
setOrders(int[] value)

protected DependentVariableDerivatives(int[] orders)
orders
 The orders of the differential equations in the differential equations.
Higher order equations are decomposed into firstorder derivatives of each dependent variable such that the
length of this set of orders corresponds to the sum of the orders of the original equations.
So if the original equations were: A first order, B third order, C second order, D first order,
then the resulting orders of this system of equations will be: 1, 3, 2, 1, 2, 1, 1protected DependentVariableDerivatives(@Nonnull DependentVariableDerivatives existingInstance, @Nonnull CopyContext context)
See ICloneWithContext.clone(CopyContext)
for more information about how to implement this constructor
in a derived class.
existingInstance
 The existing instance to copy.context
 A CopyContext
that controls the depth of the copy.ArgumentNullException
 Thrown when existingInstance
or context
is null
.public abstract Object clone(CopyContext context)
This method should be implemented to call a copy constructor on the class of the
object being cloned. The copy constructor should take the CopyContext
as a parameter
in addition to the existing instance to copy. The copy constructor should first call
CopyContext.addObjectMapping(T, T)
to identify the newly constructed instance
as a copy of the existing instance. It should then copy all fields, using
CopyContext.updateReference(T)
to copy any reference fields.
A typical implementation of ICloneWithContext
:
public static class MyClass implements ICloneWithContext {
public MyClass(MyClass existingInstance, CopyContext context) {
context.addObjectMapping(existingInstance, this);
someReference = context.updateReference(existingInstance.someReference);
}
@Override
public final Object clone(CopyContext context) {
return new MyClass(this, context);
}
private Object someReference;
}
In general, all fields that are reference types should be copied with a call to
CopyContext.updateReference(T)
. There are a couple of exceptions:
If one of these exceptions applies, the CopyContext
should be given an opportunity
to update the reference before the reference is copied explicitly. Use
CopyContext.updateReference(T)
to update the reference. If CopyContext.updateReference(T)
returns
the original object, indicating that the context does not have a replacement registered,
then copy the object manually by invoking a Clone method, a copy constructor, or by manually
constructing a new instance and copying the values.
alwaysCopy = context.updateReference(existingInstance.alwaysCopy);
if (existingInstance.alwaysCopy != null && alwaysCopy == existingInstance.alwaysCopy) {
alwaysCopy = (AlwaysCopy) existingInstance.alwaysCopy.clone(context);
}
If you are implementing an evaluator (a class that implements IEvaluator
), the
IEvaluator.updateEvaluatorReferences(agi.foundation.infrastructure.CopyContext)
method shares some responsibilities with the
copy context constructor. Code duplication can be avoided by doing the following:
CopyContext.updateReference(T)
. You should still call CopyContext.updateReference(T)
on any references to
nonevaluators.
IEvaluator.updateEvaluatorReferences(agi.foundation.infrastructure.CopyContext)
as the last line in the constructor and pass it the
same CopyContext
passed to the constructor.
IEvaluator.updateEvaluatorReferences(agi.foundation.infrastructure.CopyContext)
as normal. See the reference documentation for
IEvaluator.updateEvaluatorReferences(agi.foundation.infrastructure.CopyContext)
for more information on implementing that method.
public MyClass(MyClass existingInstance, CopyContext context) {
super(existingInstance, context);
someReference = context.updateReference(existingInstance.someReference);
evaluatorReference = existingInstance.evaluatorReference;
updateEvaluatorReferences(context);
}
@Override
public void updateEvaluatorReferences(CopyContext context) {
evaluatorReference = context.updateReference(evaluatorReference);
}
@Override
public Object clone(CopyContext context) {
return new MyClass(this, context);
}

context
 The context to use to perform the copy.public abstract boolean getIsThreadSafe()
If this property is true
, all methods and properties are guaranteed to be thread safe.
Conceptually, an object that returns true
for this method acts as if there is a lock
protecting each method and property such that only one thread at a time can be inside any method or
property in the class. In reality, such locks are generally not used and are in fact discouraged. However,
the user must not experience any exceptions or inconsistent behavior that would not be experienced if such
locks were used.
If this property is false
, the behavior when using this class from multiple threads
simultaneously is undefined and may include inconsistent results and exceptions. Clients wishing to use
multiple threads should call CopyForAnotherThread.copy(T)
to get a separate instance of the
object for each thread.
