After a lot of time thinking whether to join some existing packages with some other existing organizations or create a new, I’ve made a new one called “JuliaDynamics”: https://github.com/JuliaDynamics. So far it only has 2 packages, DynamicalSystems.jl and DynamicalBilliards.jl, both with a significant amount of content.
I hope more people find themselves interested in this and would like to join and/or create collaborations. In my personal opinion, I think organizations are very useful not only for coding collaboration but also for grouping similar thematic content. I really hope that more people share this opinion, because for me it has been useful so far.
With this I would gladly invite any package that feels like it has similar content to the ones existing already in the organization, or to what the name of the organization stands for. Many have suggested that general packages that are aimed in simulations would fit here, like for example Sims.jl from @tshort and many more.
EDIT: Added gitter channel: https://gitter.im/JuliaDynamics/Lobby
Okay, the logo that I have so far for the organization is this:
it’s actually stolen from the homepage of DynamicalBilliards
I was thinking a lot about what kind of logo I could use for either this organization page or even the package DynamicalSystems.jl and after some tries with @cormullion I’m making this post to invite others if they want to tackle it! A previous post on the site about the logo of JuliaPhysics seemed to be enjoyed very much by the community!
Other ideas I had about the logo is to use the fractal attractor basin of the three magnet pendulum, which looks like:
(of course replacing the colors with the julia colors - if somebody can do that please go ahead!).
Another good idea is to create a system with 3 attractors, much like the magnet one but much more regular, and make each attractor be one of the 3 julia balls. Something like this:
but with 3 attractors instead.
Well, the rest is up to you! Also, if you think you know anybody interested in the organization, go ahead and tag them. I will be glad to do modifications to some of my code to be able to interact with other codes, if something like this is advantageous.
