Lorenz Attractor

This is an implementation of Lorenz’ groundbreaking model that exhibits continuous-time chaos.

A google search turns up lots of good information on this model. For more advanced material, try google scholar.

I didn’t replicate this from Lorenz’ original 1963 article, Deterministic Nonperiodic Flow, but you can find a copy here.

Ultradian Oscillations of Insulin and Glucose (Vensim .vpm)

Update, 10/2017:

Refreshed, with units defined (mathematically the same as before): ultradia2.vpm ultradia2.mdl

Further refined, for initialization in equilibrium (insulin by analytic expression; glucose by parameter). Glucose infusion turned on by default. Graphs added.

Units balance: Yes

Format: Vensim; requires Model Reader or an advanced version

Notes: See discussion at metasd.

Files:

Grinsted_v3b‎ – first model; default calibration replicates Rahmstorf, and optimization is set up to adjust constant terms to fit Rahmstorf slope to data

Grinsted_v3c – second model; updated data and calibration, as in Part III

Grinsted_v3c-k2 – third model; set up for Kalman filtering, as in Part V
