Next semester is approaching fast, and I haven’t had time to dabble with code much so far this summer. So, in order not to take on more than I can chew, I decided I wanted to revisit an assignment from the Computational Physics course. Using numerical integration, we had to find the mass-radius relationship of white …

This post is a follow up to my introduction to partial differential equations. As I mentioned in the other post, it is sometimes not possible to find an expression for the solution to a PDE. So, how can be be sure that the solution even exists? And does it even make sense to talk about …

Since my studies currently involve a lot of partial differential equations (PDEs) I thought a brief introduction might be in order. I’ll start by introducing ordinary differential equations (ODEs) first, since they are in many ways very similar. When you solve an ordinary equation like \( 2x^2 – 3x = 5 \) you want to …
