Solar Photon Random Walk  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
D. Onken
View comments | Relations
The Solar Photon Random Walk Model simulates the path of photons in radiative transport as they escape from the Sun. Photons do not travel in a straight line, but rather collide with…
Brute Force Microstates Model  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian, T. Salagaram, and N. Chetty
Post a comment | Relations
The Brute Force Microstates model considers an isolated system consisting of N identical, non-interacting quantum particles. We wish to determine the total number of system…

W. Christian
Post a comment | Relations | Standards
The Newton's Law of Cooling model computes the temperature of an object of mass M as it is heated by a flame and cooled by the surrounding medium. The model assumes that the…
Coin Flip Equilibrium  [ Computer Program ]
  
Match Score:
100
Byline:
T. Timberlake
Post a comment | Relations
The EJS Coin Flip Equilibrium model simulates a a simple system of N coins arranged in ordered rows. The coins all begin heads up. At each step of the simulation one or more coins…
