To All:

In case you are one of the students who decided to go with the default final project, that is, SimEngine3D, please read on.

For the final project it is enough if you have the Modified-Newton method fully implemented and demonstrated with the double pendulum problem. This is the problem assigned in the last homework, when you only had to implement the quasi-Newton approach.

For your Final Project presentation you will have to talk about your input file, explain the structure of the code, demo it, and show an animation of the results. I would also like to see a smaller number of iterations and shorter simulation times compared to the quasi-Newton approach implemented earlier.

I hope this helps, if you have other questions please post them on the forum (where this message also got posted).
