Show physics, math and engineering students how an ODE solver
is made and how effective classes can be for the construction of
the equations that describe natural phenomena. Inspiration for this work
comes from the book on "Computer Simulations in Physics"
by Harvey Gould, Jan Tobochnik, and Wolfgang Christian.

I have improved the README with plots. Added more ODE solver examples.

Please, feel to contribute via GitHub:

For those interested in exploring computational physics using R, I have created S4 classes from the ODE solvers available in OSP. Not intended for speed but learning R, S4 classes or how the algorithms were implemented without the Java internals get in the way. The package also includes the classic examples such as FallingParticle, Pendulum, Kepler, Planet, Reaction and others available in Matlab.

The package is now available in CRAN and be installed from any R environment such as RStudio.

Description: Show Physics and engineering students how an ODE solver is
made and how effective classes can be for the construction of
the equations that describe how effective classes can be for
the  construction of equations that describe the natural
phenomena. Most  of the ideas come from the book on "Computer
