Shooting Fish in a Barrel Model 

written by Jack Taylor

The Shooting Fish in a Barrel Model presents a simple game that shows how to solve arrays of ordinary differential equations (ODEs) and how to use ODE events to detect collisions.  This game was developed a mid-term project in computational physics class at Davidson College.

The  Shooting Fish in a Barrel  Model was created using the Easy Java/JavaScript Simulations (EjsS) modeling tool.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.
