Physics nonlinear ODE example for numerical methods project?

  1. Jun 29, 2013 #1
    I am doing a little research project into numerical methods of solving ODEs where I do 1 half of learning about the basics of numerical methods and then look at a particular method (Linear multistep) and then the second half is looking at a particular example, applying what I've learnt and writing a report about it.
    I've just about completed the first part.

    I was wondering if anyone could give an interesting non-linear example which I might be able to work on, or instruct me how I could find such an example and the required equation/s.
    I have done a semester course on ODEs and semester of physics, and I am interested in plasma physics in the future (but I have been advised that using a specific example from plasma physics might be too unwieldy with my limited experience).
