1076TClimateBifurcation
08 Aug 2019  Modeling Scenarios
In this paper we present (for educational purposes) simple zero and one dimensional models for the mean temperature of the Earth. These models can exhibit bifurcations from the present Earth climate to an ice age or a ``Venus type of climate.'' The models are accompanied by Matlab...

3067TRLCSeriesCircuit
28 Apr 2019  Modeling Scenarios
In this validationoriented setup, the second order linear ordinary differential governing equation of a small signal RLC series AC circuit is solved analytically, and the results are compared with the data acquired from analyzing the numerical model (using Multisim).
