  Linear Wave Propagation

trapezoidal method, waves, Fourier transform

An introduction to studying linear surface waves on an infinite domain. In particular, the problem of finding the time evolution of a small perturbation of the surface of an inviscid and incompressible fluid.

  Simple Sound Filtering

discrete fourier transform, nyquist-shannon sampling theorem, music, sound filtering, beat

Programming with sounds and using Fourier transforms to filter sound signals.


simpson's method, newton, euler, eigenvalue, poisson's equation, integration, interpolation

Analyzing sloshing using a numerical approach based on a linear model, which reduces the problem to a Steklov eigenvalue problem.

  Doppler Effect

speed of sound, doppler, discrete fourier transform

Calculating the speed of a passing train by Fourier analysis of the corresponding sound file.
