The Lorenz Equations

This is a numerical simulation of the Lorenz equations. These are a system of first order differential equations given by:

dx/dt = sigma (y-x)

dy/dt = rho x - y - xz

dz/dt = xy - beta z

To restart the numerical integration of this system at time 0, click inside one of the graphical display windows. To pause/unpause a computation press the space bar while the mouse pointer is over the applet. Hit (almost) any other key to clear the drawing window.
