#### animation orbit structure (11.4.97)

##### Aldrovando Azeredo Araujo

I am very new to Maple and maybe my problem is easily solved. Anyway, I am working with diﬀerential equations with a geometrical approach. So I am more interested in analysing the orbit structure of diﬀerential equations.

Is there a plot procedure that gives me the animated orbit of some initial condition in the space, like following some orbit of Lorentz’s equation into the attractor? For example like the ”comet” function in MatLab?

I don’t know about ”comet”, but here’s one thing you can do. This requires Release 4 (but there are ways to get similar eﬀects in Release 3).

There is a section of Nicolaides-Walkington that does this. Incidentally, I believe Lorenz is spelled without a t. N-W make the same error.
