  • Abstract

OptimalReplacementVariables(ORV) isamethodforapproximatingalarge system of ODEs by one with fewer equations, while attempting to preserve the essential dynamics of a reduced set of variables of interest. An earlier version of ORV [1] had some issues, including limited accuracy and in some rare cases, instability. Here we present a newversion of ORV, inspired by the linear quadraticregulatorproblemof control theory, which provides better accuracy, a guarantee of stability and is in some ways easier to use.
