Models from Shiflet & Shiflet: Introduction to Computational Science

BookCoverGeneral Instructions:  The links on this page are intended to accompany the textbook Introduction to Computational Science by Angela B. Shiflet and George W. Shiflet  (© 2006 by Princeton University Press ISBN: 0-691-12565-1). Each of the model pages contains a Nova applet running the model of interest. Each page also contains a link for downloading the model to run on the user’s own Nova desktop system. The page also contains a brief description of the model. In order for the applet to run your browser must have an enabled Java applet plug-in running Java 1.6 or later. See browser documentation for further instructions. The first time one of these applets runs may require significant download time. Subsequent runs of any applet in this group should load more quickly since they all will share the same Nova runtime. To run these models directly click Capture – Load – Exec. Automode, Timeline and I-Mode operation are also available — see Nova documentation for more details. The Nova model canvas and dashboard panes may be adjusted for convenient viewing.

Note:  Applets no longer run in the Chrome browser.
