Double Pendulum

Hi All! - An interactive double pendulum with music.

Demo: trickshot

Choose three initial conditions that are (relatively) high energy and ~stable. This project involved some python scripts that found the points of stability, testing thousands of initial conditions from 100 degrees to 258. The main script took ~two days (on my slow CPU) to complete.

Pretty much approximating enough floating point precision by finding the dark areas and “zooming in”. The other dark areas are most likely similar stability points.
