Julia has to some degree already cemented itself in the scientific community, and will most likely continue to expand in the coming years. It aims at taking the middle ground between Python on one side, and Fortran and C++ on the other. In this notebook we offer a quick introduction for those who wish to venture from Python to Julia.
The Bak-Sneppen model of evolution is a simple model describing the evolution of an ecosystem. It offers a surprising amount of insight given its simplicity. This notebook does not deep dive into the model, but illustrates the basics using the Julia programming language.
The trajectory of a charged particle propagating in a non-uniform magnetic field is calculated by solving the Lorentz force law using an embedded Runge-Kutta pair. The results show that the particle is mirrored.
