Yes, that's one way to do it.

Not necessarily: you only have to impose the spatial kind of
distribution you want in the formulation, and modulate by whatever time
function you want in the resolution (i.e. in 'Update[]'). In other
words, with the second kind of resolution, 'dfdt[]' is evaluated only
once at the begining of the processing (at a moment when the time loop
is not even started: check the position of 'GenerateSeparate[]' in the
resolution). It should of course not be equal to zero: but that's no
issue since the time function is specified in the 'Update[]'.

Anyway, if you feel uncomfortable with the second kind of resolution,
just use the first one. This one is the classical (but not very
effective) way to solve the problem. BTW, to speed up the computation,
you may also set the 'Re_Use_ILU' flag to 1 in your SOLVER.PAR file.
This will prevent the incomplete decomposition of the matrix to be
computed at each time step.
