So, you're lucky and thanks for the substitutions and the result - is looks like a Predictor-Corrector method generally, so I have a little comment - idea - on it (and yes, I have no time until 21 Dec to check it):

When you calculated the slope in the line 70 and you use the Euler estimation of Y, you get an estimated value of the slope in X+dX. But when Y new value is calculated, you have a possibility to improve this slope if you use the second order estimated Y value in X+dX. Maybe repeating the line 70 with the most precise Y value gives a better estimation?!


Repeating line 70 generates more error since that step has no theoretical justification. I did try it and the percent error jumped significantly!!!
