The Second Order System concept models the algorithmic implementation of the rhs for steppers requirering the second order derivative, hence the r.h.s. of the ODE x'' = f(x,x',t). The only requirement for this concept is that it should be callable with a specific parameter syntax (see below). A Second Order System is typically implemented as a function or a functor. Systems fulfilling this concept are required by the Velocity Verlet method.

Calculate x'' := f(x,x',t) 


Calculates f(x,x',t), the result is stored into a.
