# 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*

These equations are integrated using a fourth order Runge Kutta
method for the parameter values:
*sigma* = 10.0, *rho* = 28.0, *beta* = 2.6667.

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.
