### Why does a two-body simulation result in no change of the y-component?

I've been attempting to create a model of a heliocentric orbit based on Newton's law of gravitation: $$\frac{d^2 \vec r}{dt^2} = -\frac{GM}{|r|^2} \hat r$$ This is what I have so far: ...

### accelerating solutions of ODEs with close by parameters

Suppose $\mathbf{u}^1\in\mathbb{R}^n$ is an unknown and $\mu^1\in\mathbb{R}$ is a known parameter. Suppose we have solved the non-linear system of equation for $\mathbf{u}^1$ using Newton's iterations....

### Hardware supporting floats with fraction beyond 64 bit

Is there any computation accelerator (like a GPGPU) available, that natively (this means in hardware, not emulated by a library) supports arithmetics using floating point numbers with a fractional ...

### Speedup of CPU Pipelining by number of steps [closed]

When a CPU has $K$ steps the speed up of using pipelining compared to non-pipelining is $K$. But what I want to know is, say I am a CPU designer and want to decide whether I should build $K$ or $N$ ...

### Error control and sequence acceleration at the same time

In a posteriori error control for solving ODEs, one typically computes two different approximate solutions, one of which being "more accurate" and one of which being "less accurate". If $y_q^{n+1}$ is ...

### Accelerate computation speed by using a different syntax [closed]

I was reading a book about Matlab ("Accelerating Matlab with GPU computing - A Primer with Examples" by Jung Suh and Youngming Kim, 2013. Chapter 1.7 Examples). I read an example where it said that: ...

### Acceleration of matrix geometric series

Suppose we want to find $x$ such that: $$x=b+Ax$$ where $A$ is a large sparse square matrix with eigenvalues in the unit circle. There are two representations of the solution: 1) $$x=(I-A)^{-1}b,$$...

### Converting acceleration over time to velocity or speed in code

I have acceleration data from a sensor. X Y & Z. I move the senor in the Y axis. Mostly in a straight line. So I ignore x & z. From the sensor documentation 5.2.1 Acceleration output： ax=((...
I want to compute a fast matrix-vector product using a matrix $T$ which has a peculiar quasi-Hankel structure. For example, \begin{equation} T_2= \left( \begin{array}{c|ccc|cccccc} a & b & c &...
