Simon’s Changes to the Lorenz Attractor Coding Challenge

Simon explains why he slightly changed Daniel Shiffman’s Lorenz Attractor Coding Challenge: Simon used four variables instead of 11.


The Lorenz system is a system of ordinary differential equations, first studied by Edward Lorenz. The Lorenz attractor is a set of chaotic solutions of the Lorenz system which, when plotted, resemble a butterfly or figure eight.
