In this paper we study the numerical solution of the differential/algebraic systems F(t, y, y prime ) equals 0. Many of these systems can be solved conveniently and economically using a range of ODE methods. Others can be solved only by a small subset of ODE methods, and still others present insurmountable difficulty for all current ODE methods. We examine the first two groups of problems and indicate which methods we believe to be best for them. Then we explore the properties of the third group which cause the methods to fail. A reduction technique described allows systems to be reduced to ones which can be solved. It also provides a tool for the analytical study of the structure of systems.
