Basic Examples  (1)

Make sure that NDSolve uses at least 100 steps over the integration range:

Applications  (1)

Features with small relative size in the integration interval can be missed:

Use MaxStepFraction to ensure features are not missed, independent of interval size:

Properties & Relations  (1)

For an interval length l, MaxStepFraction->f is equivalent to MaxStepSize->(f l):
