From the Los-Alamos Laboratory to your local universities, research scientists around the world use computers as serious research tools to study a whole range
of subjects: from financial market behavior to galaxy formations, even in the realm of sub-atomic world. In most cases, computers are used to imitate or simulate real subjects as much-simplified computer models.
The behavior of models are often governed by a few simple rules or numbers. Computer experiments can be carried out by changing one or more of these rules or numbers and the change in a model behavior
is studied. Attempts can then be made to predict how the corresponding subjects would behave in a real world.
The aim of this Park section is to promote educational use of your computer by running Java programs (applets). This is not a profit-making company. The computational and
modelling subjects are arranged in different topics as shown in the Subject page. Brief descriptions are given for each topic. The aim is not to overwhelm with details. Rather, it is
intended to give introductory background by using jargon-free English language, whenever possible, to reach as wide range of group of people as possible.
In each topic a graphical user interface (GUI)-based applet is supplied. The GUI is the platform where users can interact with the applet. By changing some
numbers and options users can see how a simulation produces different outcomes accordingly.
Running applets are free. However, we charge a small fee if you wish to obtain the program source codes. This is to cover the web-site maintenance and give
incentives to improve and include more contents. For more details please refer to the Source codes link.
