sling_ode


sling_ode, a Python code which sets up and solves a system of ordinary differential equations (ODE) for which the exact circular solution can only be approximated for a short interval before it spirals to the origin.

A parameter S has the default value 1, and corresponds to rapid decay of the solution. If S is decreased towards 0, the computed solution is better able to stay close to the exact circular path. Once S becomes negative, however, the approximated solutions will tend to spiral out to infinity.
