BoundsError: attempt to access 1-element Vector{Float64} at index 
Stacktrace:

I’m guessing this line is the problem since Julia is 1-based indexed.

then what should i do

Replace the zeros with ones…

You can change the indexing so that arrays start at zero, but this can cause problems as can be seen in a recent thread - far too much library code assumes that arrays start at index one.

The style with which you write code is not best practice. Because Julia has an ‘end’ keyword you don’t need to indent the code as with Python, nevertheless it is a good thing to do. It makes is easier to see how the code execution will flow.

using DifferentialEquations, Plots
function f(du, u, h, p, t) = u
k1, k2, τ = p = h(p, t - τ,idxs=1)
du = d​:v: = (1 - - k1 * - k2)

end

u0 = 1.0
τ = 7
h(p, t,idxs=1) = 1.0
p = 0.7, 0.5, 7
tspan = (0.0, 10.0)
prob = DDEProblem(f, u0, h, p, canstant_lag = [τ])

it still don’t working

It says your tspan is wrong because you didn’t pass it to the problem constructor.

prob = DDEProblem(f, u0, h, tspan, p, canstant_lag = [τ])
