Matrix-defined differential equation with perturbation error

I’m getting error ERROR: LoadError: Failed to precompile MacroTools to C:\Users\LocalUser.julia\lib\v0.6\MacroTools.ji.

Code:

``````

M = Array(dt[:,2:12]);

mu = Array(dt[:,13]);

eps = Array(dt[:,13]);

tspan = (0.0,300.0);

function u(t,tau)
if t>tau
return 1
end
return 0
end

using DifferentialEquations

x0 = ones(mu)/10;

f(x,p,t) = mu.*x + x.*(M*x) + eps.*x * (u(t,1.5)-u(t,2.5))

prob = ODEProblem(f,x0,tspan)
sol = solve(prob)
using Plots; plot(sol)```

test.csv is this:

I really don’t know much about Julia at all, only been using it a couple of days and wanted to try a lotka volterra system with defined parameters. I get the below error when running this:

``````fatal: error thrown and no exception handler available.

``````

This seems like a package versioning problem. Check `Pkg.status()`: do you have the latest versions like DifferentialEquations.jl v4.5.0?

And just to mention a few things. I would do:

``````u(t,tau) = ifelse(t>tau,1,0)
``````

to speed up that tidbit, and then set `tstops`:

``````sol = solve(prob,tstops = [1.5,2.5])
``````

to perfectly resolve the discontinuities.

Thanks for the tips.

As for versions,

DifferentialEquations is 4.5.0
DiffEqOperators is 1.3.0
OrdinaryDiffEq is 3.16.1
DiffEqCallbacks is 1.1.0

Anything look wrong with that? The only other packages I’ve installed are Plots, CSV and IJulia.

Hmm, I’m running the code and it’s working just fine. Did you use the generic binary from https://julialang.org/downloads/ or did you do something different like build from source?
