Catalogue Note

FEYNMAN WORKING ON FIRST AND SECOND ORDER RUNGE-KUTTA METHODS FOR THE NUMERICAL INTEGRATION OF ORDINARY DIFFERENTIAL EQUATIONS, SEEMINGLY IN RELATION TO COMPUTER CODING. 

A wonderful pair of manuscripts showing Feynman's keen interest in computer coding and life-long love of arithmetic. The larger sheet focuses on 1st order Runge-Kutta, and cites Carnaham, Luther, and Wilkes' 1969 work Applied Numerical Methods. The second manuscript, in red ink, is very detailed, and contains neatly written codes, calculations and accompanying flow-charts, additionally citing Janhke & Emde, referring to their epic Tables of Functions with Formulae and Curves.
