MagneticPendulumBasins is a CUDA generator of "basins of attraction" of magnetic pendulum for arbitrary number of magnets. Pendulum model is simplified and its description can by found here:

Simply clone this repository and run either python src/ (png files generator) or python src/ (OpenGL visualizer). Note that the latter is experimental at the moment. It may also require you to:

pip install PyDispatcher PyVRML97 OpenGLContext

Simple example

Similar code as the following example can be found in '':

# Parameters: pos_x, pos_y, magnet strength constant
magnet1 = MagnetModel(1.0, 0.0, 1.5)
magnet2 = MagnetModel(-1.0, -1.0, 1.5)
magnet3 = MagnetModel(-1.0, 1.0, 1.5)

magnets = [magnet1, magnet2, magnet3]     	

# Parameters: friction, gravity pullback, plane distance
pendulum = PendulumModel(0.3, 0.5, 0.25)
pendulum.magnets = magnets 

# Parameters: time_step
integrator = EulerIntegrator(0.01)  

# Paramaters: r, g, b - startign color definition
#image_generator = BasicImageGenerator(255, 0, 0)	# just colors the regions 
image_generator = AdvancedImageGenerator(255, 0, 0)	# colors and adds gradient based on trajectory length
image_generator.draw_grid = False		
image_generator.antialiasing = True     # if true image is 2x smaller

# Parameters: simulation size, image size in pixels
basins_generator = BasinsGenerator(5, 2000)
basins_generator.pendulum_model = pendulum
basins_generator.integrator = integrator
basins_generator.image_generator = image_generator

# Parameters: initial velocity vect, simulation time, delta, kernel sim time
basins_generator.calculate_basins([0, 0], 50, 0.4, 2)   

# Parameters: file_name
