Equations of motion and integrators
The problem sheet
You can get the problem sheet here (148 KB). Solutions have to be handed in as a single PDF or on paper until 11th of November.
The corresponding code
The prepared code consists of three parts:
- A simple C-Program that integrates the equations of motion for a single particle with a constant external force. The integration algorithm needs to be implemented by you.
- A Qt-Frontend to the integrator to make up for a nice game.
- A simple Molecular Dynamics Code to deal with more complicated problems. With three different integrators, parts of our solar system can be simulated and viewed. Two of those integrators have to be implemented by you.
