Computational Modeling with Open Source Physics and Easy Java Simulations
South African National Institute for Theoretical Physics Event
A hands-on introduction to Open Source Physics (OSP), Tracker video modeling, and Easy Java Simulations (EJS) to model physical systems that combines short expositions with practical sessions where participants will work in teams on computers provided by the organizers. Participants will study and explore, step by step, important computational examples, such as the gravitational N-body and the Ising models, to learn how they have been implemented, and then modify these examples to add new capabilities. Assistance will be provided during the sessions.
