PyPLANE is an application written in Python for solving systems of Ordinary Differential Equations (ODEs). It is intended as an open source replacement for Pplane and Dfield, two proprietary Java applications which are often used as teaching tools in academia.
NB. PyPLANE is still in development, and there are likely to be bugs that we don't know about yet (along with the ones that we're aware of). Anyone with any level of knowledge regarding calculus and differential equations is welcome to help in testing PyPLANE, and opening an issue on the Github page (see https://github.com/m-squared96/PyPLANE ).
For versions of Ubuntu between 14.04 LTS (Trusty Tahr) and 15.10 (Wily Werewolf), as well as Ubuntu flavours that don’t include snap by default, snap can be installed from the Ubuntu Software Centre by searching for snapd.
Alternatively, snapd can be installed from the command line:
sudo apt update
sudo apt install snapd
Either log out and back in again, or restart your system, to ensure snap’s paths are updated correctly.
To install PyPLANE, simply use the following command:
