Mike Glazer’s Programs

Monatomic and Diatomic Chains

I have  made available for downloading two programs designed to demonstrate vibrations of a linear 1-dimensional chain and a 2-dimensional array. These programs are useful for teaching to undergraduates typically in a Condensed Matter lecture course.

NOTE: BUGFIX 20 Jan 2012:  I have corrected a bug in the alternating force constants routine.
