Computer Exercises

James P. Sethna and Christopher Myers...

for "Entropy, Order Parameters, and Complexity"

and the Cornell IGERT class on Complex Networks, Gene Regulation, Locomotion and Manipulation, Pattern Formation, ...

These are old versions, which I should update. The new course Web site is at

Most of the computational exercises have been implemented in Python (below), but a few are available as GUIs, either cross-platform or windows-only: and a link to the Self-Avoiding Random Walk simulation at BU.
