Re: System of differential equations

I found that converting your input cell to TraditionalForm and then back again to StandardForm - thus causing the terms in the differential equations to be reorganised - made NDSolve work though you now get a "NDSolve::mxst: Maximum number of 10000 steps reached ..." warning message.
