Relativistic and Newtonian Oscillator Comparison JS Model
written by Kostas Papamichalis
The Relativistic Plane-Oscillator JS Model compares the motion of a Newtonian and a relativistic  plane oscillator.  The comparison of the two motions shows that the path of the relativistic oscillator, although plane and localized, is not in general, a closed curve like the corresponding path in the Newtonian model.

A supplemental document describing the theory and related exercise is provided.
