CPU time and precision as a function of time for Brutus . On the left, we plot the CPU time of the simulation which took the longest, as a function of dissolution time. On the right, we plot the Bulirsch-Stoer tolerance of the simulation which needed the highest precision, as a function of dissolution time. The different curves represent the four sets of initial conditions as in the previous plots.
