### Converting physics example to Velocity Verlet / Leapfrog method

I'm looking at the impressive video about verlet integration. I managed to implement a sphere falling, exactly like the video up to the minute mark 2:19 in the video. I want to use velocity verlet ...

### Integrating accelerometer data samples to get velocity and displacement

I am working on an android app built in Unity that would allow the users to track their movements by just using the data coming from the device sensors. I have read about similar issues already and I ...

### How do you exactly implement a Semi-Implicit Euler type of movement in a 2D platformer?

So I've been following along Sebastian Lague's 2D platformer tutorial, and to understand exactly how the physics of how a jump is done, I dug into the subject and noticed a lot of people, from ...

### Orbits: Combine the Pros of RK4, Symplectic Euler, and Verlet Velocity Integrator

Recently, I've implemented and compared a number of basic integrators for my physics engine. The 3 that gave me the best results are RK4, Symplectic Euler, and Verlet Velocity, but I think I need ...

### Gravity Simulation failing at short distances

I have a 2D space simulation with gravity acting on three bodies (e.g. sun and 2x planets). The simulation seems pretty stable with RK4 (was unstable with Euler). The problem arises if the orbit of ...
