Three Steps of HGM

  1. Finding a holonomic system satisfied by the normalizing constant. We may use computational or theoretical methods to find it. Groebner basis and related methods are used.
  2. Finding an initial value vector for the holonomic system. This is equivalent to evaluating the normalizing constant and its derivatives at a point. This step is usually performed by a series expansion.
  3. Solving the holonomic system numerically. We use several methods in numerical analysis such as the Runge-Kutta method of solving ordinary differential equations and efficient solvers of systems of linear equations.
