### How Can I Relax a Molecule in Mathematica?

Mathematica has a couple of force fields available for relaxing atomic coordinates. For example you can start with ethane in a nearly planar geometry and find a more reasonable geometry via ...

### Fixed coordinate is shifting in each frame of the animation

Too long for a comment: @SanGu: Study this code to see the first steps for reducing your second posting by at least 50%: ...

### Separation of variables

By expanding both equations as differences (assuming to be solved for a zero), taking the common numerators and handling $$(r,\ v_r =\dot r, \ \sin \theta, \ \cos \theta , \ \omega = \dot \theta )$$...

### How does FindRoot work?

One technique is to use Groebner bases--the analogy of Gaussian elimination in linear systems--to make an equation in x (solve that), use that in the second equation (in x and y)... solve that for y, ...

### Speeding up the nested NIntegration consisted of Exp' and Bessel' functions

Following the discussion given in the post some, I guess, evident steps for the experienced users were done. In fact It was possible to speed up the code in approx. 20 times. One was necessary a) ...

### Finding the minimum of a multivariate function

Here is a working example. As you did not specify G and M, I choose arbitrary tensors for an example. Also note that I use smaller case variable names as you should in MMA: ...

### Find the minumum value of an expression

If $a=1$, the function you are trying to minimize looks like this: and it can get infinitely close to the value of 1000. Therefore, the question only makes sense if $a$ and $b$ are integers; and with ...

### SpherePoints problem

This is just out of curiosity regarding @DanielHuber comment. If you image the points to be electrical charged and considers the energy, then the configuration with 45 degree rotated faces has lower ...

### SpherePoints problem

I hope this picture is self-explanatory. I use the so-called Lambert cylindrical equal area projection which maps the sphere to a cylinder, area to equal area. Please, notice periodicity along each ...
