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.
