Three Steps of HGM
- 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.
- 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.
- 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
