I am a lecturer in the School of Mathematics at the University of Leeds. My research specialization is numerical analysis (mostly ordinary differential equations, some partial differential equations, some linear algebra). Most of my programming is related to this; in particular I contribute to the Eigen library (linear algebra, C++). I usually program in Python, C++ or MATLAB. I have been using LaTeX from \pm 1994.

I get it, you are worried about poles in $R$.

Why does $x_{k+1} = R(\lambda\tau) x_k$ only hold for small enough step size?

comment Symplectic integrators and divergence free vector fields
I added a bit on second-order equations. You need the acceleration field to come from a conservative force; for instance, you can have acceleration pointing to the origin (a central force).
