  1. I integrated the Lorenz equations using the RK4 method in Python. As time increases, the curve transitions from blue to green, and the red bead moves along a (nearly) closed curve in the attractor. The Jupyter notebook in the repo below generates the images, then I used ImageMagick to convert the png files into a gif.

    *Edited to include GitHub repo and how I created the gif from the png files*

  2. Can someone explain how this Lorenz equation would relate to real life? My guess is that this is a representation of what a massive body would behave like when it rotates around a binary star?
