FAIR_DICE_SIMULATION is available in a C version and a C++ version and a FORTRAN90 version and a MATLAB version.
BROWNIAN_MOTION_SIMULATION, a C library which simulates Brownian motion in an M-dimensional region.
DUEL_SIMULATION, a C program which simulates N repetitions of a duel between two players, each of whom has a known firing accuracy.
FOREST_FIRE_SIMULATION, a C program which simulates the occurrence of fires and regrowth in a forest, displaying the results using X Windows, by Michael Creutz.
gnuplot_test, C programs which illustrate how a program can write data and command files so that gnuplot can create plots of the program results.
HIGH_CARD_SIMULATION, a C program which simulates a situation in which you see the cards in a deck one by one, and must select the one you think is the highest and stop; the program uses GNUPLOT for graphics.
ISING_2D_SIMULATION, a C program which carries out a Monte Carlo simulation of an Ising model. a 2D array of positive and negative charges, each of which is likely to "flip" to be in agreement with neighbors.
LIFE_OPENGL, a C program which uses OpenGL to display the evolution of John Conway's "Game of Life".
POISSON_SIMULATION, a C library which simulates a Poisson process in which events randomly occur with an average waiting time of Lambda.
REACTOR_SIMULATION, a C program which a simple Monte Carlo simulation of the shielding effect of a slab of a certain thickness in front of a neutron source. This program was provided as an example with the book "Numerical Methods and Software."
SNAKES_AND_LADDERS, C programs which simulate the game of Snakes and Ladders.
STRING_SIMULATION, a C program which simulates the behavior of a vibrating string.
THREE_BODY_SIMULATION, a C program which simulates the behavior of three planets, constrained to lie in a plane, and moving under the influence of gravity, by Walter Gander and Jiri Hrebicek.
