Match Score:
100
Byline:
L. Engelhardt
Chapter 1 of Open Source tools for Computational Physics: An introduction to EJS and Python . This chapter introduces the use of the computer as a “black box” (i.e., without…
Cubic Spline Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
The Cubic Spline Model displays a cubic spline and its derivatives. The model constructs N third-order piecewise continuous polynomialz (cubic splines) that connect N data points…
Hidden Function Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
The Hidden Function model evaluates a function f(x) with parameters. It is designed to teach function concepts by allowing a teacher to define a function, hide that function in a…
Fibonacci Spiral Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
The Fibonacci Spiral Model draws a geometric spiral whose growth is regulated by the Fibonacci series. Its growth parallels the rapid growth of the series itself. The golden spiral…
Fibonacci Sphere Model  [ Computer Program ]

Match Score:
100
Byline:
W. Christian
The Fibonacci Sphere Model draws n equidistant points on a sphere by distributing the points on a Fibonacci spiral. The sequence the produces this distribution separates advances the…
