Basic Examples  (2)

Stop integration after 25 steps:

Allow integration to go to completion without any restriction on the number of steps:

Plot the solution in the phase plane:

Properties & Relations  (1)

MaxSteps is roughly equivalent to an event with a step counter:

The event function is evaluated a few extra times during initialization:
