Science of Sound
Welcome to Science of Sound. This course is offered as a regular class Fall Semesters on the USU campus in Logan, Utah. It is also available over the internet Fall, Spring, and Summer semesters, or as a yearlong independent-studies course. In each case, work is submitted using the internet. The only difference in the regular class held Fall semester is that students meet with the professor three times a week to discuss the material in the text. A teaching assistant is assigned to answer question

Curve Fitting
With your mouse, drag data points and their error bars, and watch the best-fit polynomial curve update instantly. You choose the type of fit: linear, quadratic, cubic, or quartic. The reduced chi-square statistic shows you when the fit is good. Or you can try to find the best fit by manually adjusting fit parameters.

Lorenz Attractor Periodic Orbits
The butterfly-like Lorenz attractor is a simplified model of two-dimensional convective fluid flow and is one of the best known images of chaos. Embedded in this attractor are unstable periodic orbits described by Viswanath and this model computes a number of these orbits. Each periodic orbit is classified by the number of times the trajectory orbits the A and B fixed points before it repeats. Note that because the attractor is chaotic and because of numerical errors and the finite precision of

Linear Congruent Number Generator
The Linear Congruent Number Generator Model The method generates a sequence of integers xi over the interval [0, m-1] by the recurrence relation x[i+1] = (ax[i]+c) mod m Where the modulus m is greater than zero, the multiplier a is greater than zero and less than m, and the increment c is greater than zero and less than m.Â All numbers are integers and all arithmetic is integer arithmetic.Â The initial value x0 is known as the seed.Â

Multiple Coin Toss Model
The EJS Multiple Coin Toss model displays the result of the flipping of N coins. The result of each set of coin flips is shown by the image of the pennies on the screen and the complete results of the tossing experiment is shown on a graph of the cumulative probability of heads. The number of coins flipped, N, and change the "fairness" of the coin by setting the probability of a "heads" result, p, can be set via text boxes.
