A multiparadigm approach for the solution of ordinary differential equations is proposed. The approach consists of augmenting a numerical continuous simulation environment with a knowledge-based system that can provide the solutions and integration constants of ordinary differential equations. The new approach is called M-Dif (multiparadigm -knowledge-based and numerical-continuous simulation environment). As a typical example of M-Dif, the architecture of M-Gest (multiparadigm Gest) is described.
