The model is very elegant in its formulation, but currently it is way too slow. I have the option of either discarding it, or massively speeding it up. I have reason to believe that large speed increases are feasible (similar models exist and have been used for sensitivity analyses in the literature). > > > > If anyone would like to help me find ways to speed it up, your help would be immeasurably appreciated.

I think that maybe the code could be sped up here by using the Matlab poly options, but I am totally unfamiliar with these.
This: >The model is very elegant in its formulation, but currently it is way too slow. seems like an oxymoron.
