This Friday, Warren Weckesser will host the first of three webinars in a series on solving differential equationsin Python. We will take a close look at the two tools available for solving ordinary differential equationsin SciPy:the “odeint” functionand the “ode” class. Two examples will be discussed: (1)the famous Lorenz equations that exhibit chaos, and (2) theGray-Scott reaction-diffusion equations in 1D, from which wewill obtain a system of ordinary differential equations byusing the “Method of Lines”. The demonstrations also include3D plots and animation using Matplotlib.
How do I…solve differential equations with Python? Part I:SciPy Tools
Friday, September 10: 1pm CST/6pm UTC
Early in 2011, Warren will host Part II: Boundary ValueProblems, and in the spring he’ll follow up with athird installment to the series. Stay tuned!
