# Method

is an option for various algorithm-intensive functions that specifies what internal methods they should use.

# Details

• Typical settings include:
•  Automatic pick the method automatically "name" use the method with the specified name {"name",opt1->val1,…} use the specified method with particular options {"name1",Method->{"name2",…}} use a method and a submethod {opt1->val1,opt2->val2,…} give options for methods
• With the default setting , the Wolfram Language will automatically try to pick the best method for a particular computation.

## Basic Examples(2)

Find a nonlinear fit for exponential decay using a quasi-Newton method:

Solve a differential equation using an explicit RungeKutta method:

Plot the solution and its derivative:

## Scope(4)

Find a root in two dimensions using Newton's method with a trust-region step control:

This takes fewer evaluations than the default step control for this problem:

Number of steps and evaluations for an ODE using RungeKutta methods of various order:

Use of event location method using a backward differentiation formula base method:

Plot the solution up to the event :

Use of event locator with a deeply nested Method option:
