## Complete courseware module documentation

The complete documentation of the courseware modules `ClimateUtilities.py,`

`phys.py`

and `planets.py`

is given in the form of an iPython notebook here. Download it and run it in an iPython notebook server window. (So far, only the `ClimateUtilities`

part is complete, but the rest will follow soon). For information on reading and using iPython notbooks, consult the Instant Notebooks page.

## ClimateUtilities.py Examples (*Obsolete*)

- Basic use of the Curve object for input/output and arithmetic on columns.
- Plotting a Curve object
- Numerical quadrature (definite integrals)
- Root finding
- Interpolation
- Integrating an ordinary differential equation in 1D. This example shows how to solve the differential equation dY/dt = f(Y,t). For background on the algorithms, see Chapter 16 (esp. 16.1 and 16.2) of Numerical Recipes, available online here
- Basic Version, passing parameters as globals. Also shows how to save results and plot.
- More general version, showing how to pass adjustable parameters (defining coefficients of the systsm) as arguments.

- Integrating an ordinary differential equation in 2D
