I have been teaching the labs for this course called “Introduction to Scientific Programming” and since I have a big mouth and a can-do attitude (which alwasys gets me into trouble) I have been assigned to come up with a Mathematical problem that
1) can be solved with a computer,
2) Can be visualized using a simple ploting tool like gnuplot,
3) is interesting and finally
4) is not that complex to solve that the students cant do it at all.
