Back to Physics 212, 2017: Computational Modeling.

Python has built-in functions for many of the things that we discussed in class.

  1. Python Student Guide, Ch 5.5 -- introduces a function for solution of nonlinear equations, the Newton method we studied in class.
  2. Python Student Guide, Ch 5.8 -- introduces a function for solution of differential equations, an analog of the RK methods we discussed in class.
  3. Python Student Guide, Ch 5.9 -- plotting vector fields and streamlines.

After this, focus on implementing the code for solution and plotting of the Project you are working on.
