The Dynamicist's Workbench: I Automatic Preparation of Numerical Experiments
The dynamicist's workbench is a system for automating some of the work of experimental dynamics. We describe a portion of our system that deals with the setting up and execution of numerical simulations. This part of the workbench includes a spectrum of computational tools---numerical methods, symbolic algebra, and semantic constraints. These tools are designed so that combined methods, tailored to particular problems, can be constructed.
