    In 1963 Edward Lorenz derived a simple set of equations describing convection in the atmosphere:

    See attached for equations.

    1. Please implement Euler integration scheme for (1) with integration step delta = 0.0001
    2. Please implement improved Euler integration scheme for (1) with delta = 0.0001
    3. Please implement Runge-Kutta integration scheme for (1)) with delta = 0.0001. Change x(0)=0 to x(0)=0.0001. Observe the butterfly effect.

    Solution Summary

    In a Matlab script, we demonstrate the application of Euler, Improved Euler, and Runge Kutta numerical methods for Lorenz attractor, and the Butterfly Effect caused by a small change of initial conditions. The solution helps implement the Euler integration scheme and the Runge-Kutta integration scheme for various equations.
