This is Jeremy Knight's presentation link for the T.A.M.U. final oral exam for the Masters of Mathematics.
 Finite Element Method and the Poisson Problem
This is a link to webpages, papers, and algorithms that I wrote to explain and demonstrate the use of applying the Finite Element Method to finding solutions of the Poisson Problem.
 Numerical Solutions of the NavierStokes Equations.
This is a project that I am currently developing to create a rigorous Matlab algorithm for finding numerical solutions to the NavierStokes equations at low Raleigh's numbers.
 Three Body Problem
The three body problem is a dynamical system problem modeling the chaotic path of three orbiting bodies affected by Newton's laws of gravity.
 Introduction to Rieman Sums
A lesson for students to learn about the Riemann sums and explore them using RiemannSums2.m which produces the plot shown to the right.

Chaos and Dynamical Systems
Projects(pdf):
The following are Matlab algor
ithms for applications in dynamical systems and chaos problems.
 mandleset.m  plots the Mandelbrot set for a given function f(z).
Begin by using function handle to enter function
such as the standard f(z)=z^2+c which can be entered into Matlab using
f(z,c)=@(z,c) z^2+c.
 threebody_script.m ; threebody.m  plots the path of the 3body problem described above.
Download both files to the same directory and run threebody_script.m. The second file contains the ODEs.
Example plot to the right.
 twobody_script.m ; twobody.m  plots the path of two bodies in space affected by gravitational pull.
Download both files to the same directory and run twobody_script.m. The second file contains the ODEs.
Example: twobody_script(100,[.35,.5,.25,.5],1e2)
 lyapunov.m  calculates the Lyapunov exponent for a given set of 1dimensional data to determine the chaotic nature of the data.
