This is part of a series of simple Java applets that I wrote in 2004 when I was doing a computational physics subject. There’s nothing too pretty here, just proof-of-concept sort of stuff. The source is included if you want to play around with any of the applets.
This one was just a bit of fun. I had a really crap 3rd year lab where they got us to tinker with a solar system model written in C. I thought I’d write my own version in Java. Not much advanced physics going on here, just the basic iterative approach to the many-body problem.
