## Oscillatory Motion and Chaos

Simple pendulum -- Euler method
### Oscillatory motion of a simple pendulum - a simple harmonic
oscillator - calculated using the Euler method. This also illustrates
the problems with using the Euler method for an oscillatory type of
problem.

Nonlinear pendulum -- Euler-Cromer method
### Motion of a damped, nonlinear pendulum, calculated using the Euler-Cromer
method. Can be used to study the chaotic behavior of this system.
