# 5.6. integrator commands¶

integrator(intType, *intArgs)

This command is used to construct the Integrator object. The Integrator object determines the meaning of the terms in the system of equation object Ax=B.

The Integrator object is used for the following:

• determine the predictive step for time t+dt
• specify the tangent matrix and residual vector at any iteration
• determine the corrective step based on the displacement increment dU
 intType (str) integrator type intArgs (list) a list of integrator arguments

The following contain information about available intType:
