The Lorenz's model

  • #1
Hi guys

I have to write a program for the lorenz's system of equations. What program/programming language should I use? Fortran, Matlab, Python, Octave, R? I can´t use a preprogrammed module, I have to write the program by myself (using maybe the finite differences method or Runge Kutta). What do yoy recommend me?

Thanks

I stay away from Fortran, Octave and R (although these would all work). Matlab, python or C would all work well. To decide which one is appropriate, we would need to know more details about what you are doing / trying to accomplish; or at least what kind of programming background you have.

Hi
Unfortunately I can't use C, I'll try it with python + numpy (in my opinion it's more advanced than C). I have enough time (2 months) to do it.

I'll post the exact problem later. But the basic tasks are the solutions of the lorenzt's equation for fixes values of sigma and rho. Main task is the numerical algorithm for solving the equation.

Thank you very much.
