Lorenz (1963) has investigated a system of three first-order differential equations, whose solutions tend toward a " strange attractor ". We show that the same properties can be observed in a simple mapping of the plane defined by: .yi+,= yi+ l-a-K;, yi+l = bx,. Numerical experiments are carried out for a= 1.4, b = 0.3, Depending on the initial point (x,,… (More)

The shear viscosity of a lattice gas can be de rived in th e Boltzmann approximat ion from a straightfor ward analysis of th e numerical algorithm. Thi s comput at ion is presented first in the case of the Friech-Has slacher-Pome au two-dimensional triangular lattice. It is then gener alized to a regular lat t ice of arbitrary dimension, shape, and… (More)

Collision rules are present ed for th e four-dimensional face-centered-hypercubi c-lattice (FCHC). The velocity set after collision is deduced from th e velocity set be fore collision by an isometry, chosen so as to preserve th e momentum and minimiz e the viscosity. A detailed implementation recipe is given. Th e shea r viscosity is ca m-puted ; th e… (More)

We describe a mechanical device which can be used as an analog computer to solve the transportation problem. In practice this device is simulated by a numerical algorithm. Tests show that this algorithm is 60 times faster than a current subroutine (NAG library) for an average 1000 × 1000 problem. Its performance is even better for degenerate problems in… (More)

Numerical integrations in celestial mechanics often involve the repeated computation of a rotation with a constant angle. A direct evaluation of these rotations yields a linear drift of the distance to the origin. This is due to roundoff in the representation of the sine s and cosine c of the angle θ. In a computer, one generally gets c 2 + s 2 = 1,… (More)
