Main Panel: Copy Result to Seed Button

This button copies the values in the Differential Corrections Scheme Result field into the Differential Corrections Scheme Seed field shown below.

This is useful when one wishes to compute a series of orbits with successively greater Z amplitude in order to increment the Z amplitude out beyond the range for which the analytical approximation given by the Compute Seed button is valid. The following steps can be used for this goal:

  1. Compute an actual orbit with the Compute Orbit I.C.'s Button
  2. Copy the actual initial conditions computed by the last press of the Compute Orbit I.C.'s Button by pressing the Copy Result to Seed button
  3. Increment the amplitude z(0) slightly to produce a new seed for an orbit of greater amplitude
