### Computing "g" during integration

In the lecture from 10/17 on slide 26, the equation for g multiplies phi_P and phi by a scaling term of 1/(beta0^2*h^2). Where does this scaling term come from?

The reason I ask is that it seems this scaling term is hurting the convergence of my dynamics analysis. As I decrease h it is driving up the value of g and thus driving up the value of my correction factor. If I remove this scaling factor it does allow my solution to get closer to convergence, but it is not fully converging (i.e. it converges due to reaching the max number of iterations not due to meeting the required tolerance).

Thanks!
