written by Wolfgang Christian
Chapter 4 of the Introduction to Computer Simulations text explores the behavior of oscillatory systems, including the simple harmonic oscillator, a simple pendulum, and electrical circuits. The concept of phase space is introduced. This chapter also illustrates the use of the EJS ODE editor to solve arrays of differential equations.

Please note that this resource requires at least version 1.5 of Java (JRE).
