Aspects of Continuation Software
In recent years, many continuation algorithms have been implemented. In order to assess the various aspects of these codes, this paper presents a list of features and options that appear to be necessary or desirable for continuation codes. With this it is hoped to provide a framework for writing further such codes, and for judging their differences.
