Binomial Coefficient Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
Post a comment | Relations
The Binomial Coefficient model displays the number of ways k objects can be chosen from among n objects when order is irrelevant.   This number is known as a binomial coefficient and…
Uniform Spherical Distribution Model  [ Computer Program ]

The EJS Binomial Distribution Model calculates the binomial distribution. You can change the number of trials and probability. You can modify this simulation if you have Ejs…
STP Multiplicative Process Program  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
H. Gould, J. Tobochnik, W. Christian, and A. Cox
Post a comment | Relations
The STP Multiplicative Process program simulates the outcome of a random multiplicative process, a product of random numbers. Examples of multiplicative processes include the…
Multiple Coin Toss Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:

Byline:
W. Christian and M. Belloni
Post a comment | Relations
The Ejs Multiple Coin Toss model displays the result of the flipping of N coins. The result of each set of coin flips is shown by the image of the pennies on the screen and the…
STP Random Walk 2D Program  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
H. Gould, J. Tobochnik, W. Christian, and A. Cox
Post a comment | Relations
The RandomWalk2D program simulates a random walk in two dimensions. The default number of walkers is 1000, and the probability of going right, left up or down at any step is the…
STP Central Limit Theorem Program  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
H. Gould, J. Tobochnik, W. Christian, and A. Cox
Post a comment | Relations
The CentralLimitTheorem program simulates a random additive process to illustrate that the distribution of the sum is a Gaussian, independent of the probability distribution of the…

J. Tobochnik and H. Gould, Am. J. Phys., 76 (4&5), 353-359 (2008).
This article discusses several ways of illustrating fundamental concepts in statistical and thermal physics by considering various models and algorithms. We emphasize the importance…
Galton Board Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:

Post a comment | Relations
A Galton board is a vertical board with n rows of pegs onto which a ball is dropped. Each time a ball hits a peg, it has a probability p of bouncing to the left and a probability of…
