And I tested a few more cases and I found a trend that using Method Gear tends to use shorter time step, (which generates more points) and usually better results than Method Trap does. So can I say for a simulation with various time steps(we want the step to be as large as possible while maintaining the accuracy, so I set the maxStep to be a big number, (Tstop - Tstart)/20 instead of the default step given by the command) method Gear tends to use a more conservative step size than Method Trap does? Does anyone have literature/proof for my conjecture?
