  1. Approximating cosine and sine functions numerically

    01 Mar 2018 | Contributor(s): Hans Rudolf Schneebeli

    Abstract:How can function values ​​for sine or cosine be quickly and reliably numerically estimated?  We consider equal circular motions on the unit circle in the complex plane and find sine and cosine as solutions of a differential equation. The two functions can be numerically...

  2. Two competing populations: simulations with differential equations

    01 Mar 2018 | Contributor(s): Hans Rudolf Schneebeli, Claudio Marsan

    Abstract: Suppose two populations are competing with each other. How can they then develop? We offer insights with simulation calculations. In the model is the evolution of the biomass of the two populations described with differential equations. A fundamental building block is the logistic...

  3. Population Modeling

    01 Mar 2018 | Contributor(s): Hans Rudolf Schneebeli, Claudio Marsan

    This paper offers many problems inolving a single population model while introducing several specific models. Both numerical methods and qualitative anlyses are offered.The paper is in German and is entitled, "Populationsmodelle: Eine Einführung in Differentialgleichungen."Hans R....

  4. Modeling Falling Bodies

    01 Mar 2018 | Contributor(s): Hans Rudolf Schneebeli

    Modelling falling bodies is discussed using a computer algebra system-calculator and introducing various traditional and elementary methods from calculus as well as  numerics for dealing with the resulting ordinary differential equations.This article is in German under the title,...

  6. 1-079-S-HomeHeating

    30 Jan 2018 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Kurt Bryan

    This project concerns the heating of a house. In particular, if one is going away for awhile, is it more economical to leave a house at a desired temperature or reheat it upon return? Both scenarios are analyzed in a series of exercises.

  7. 1-079-T-HomeHeating

    30 Jan 2018 | Modeling Scenarios | Contributor(s): Kurt Bryan

    This project concerns using Newton's Law of Cooling to model the heating of a house. In particular, if one is going away for awhile, is it more economical to leave a house at a desired temperature or reheat it upon return? Both scenarios are analyzed in a series of exercises. The...
