Dynamis is a small software package for studying coupled dynamical systems, i.e. systems of ordinary differential equations with local connections (by diffusion) on a rectangular grid.

Dynamis is written in C (in a mock object-oriented style of using function pointers). It contains a numerical ODE solver (Runge-Kutta method) and produces PNG images that can be combined in a video. project page for mercurial repository

Dynamis was an undergraduate research project in 2001. The main purpose of the project was to observe emergent phenomena in a minimalistic settings.

The spatial replicator system. the model
The system starts from disorder, a completely random initial distribution.
