Rutherford scattering (non-relativistic classical mechanics)
We consider classical Rutherford scattering of two nuclei at non-relativistic energy. In the original
experiment, Rutherford an

Scattering from spherical potential well (non-relativistic classical mechanics)
We consider the elastic scattering of two particles with masses m1 and m2 in the center-of-mass
frame with e

Numerical solution of Hamiltons equations: relative motion of
two nuclei (Coulomb + nuclear potential)
We consider the relative motion of two nuclei described by the Hamilton function

Kepler problem: a numerical study for various eccentricities
Volker Oberacker, Vanderbilt University, Aug. 21, 2012
We study the Kepler problem, i.e. the classical non-relativistic motion of a point particle in
an attractive potential eld of the form
