Science – Based App Development

PiSwift – This app uses the Monte Carlo method to calculate the value of pi.
Atmospheric Model – This app uses a simple two-layer radiative transfer model to calculate planetary temperatures and radiative flux densities that affect climate.
You can search for PiSwift on the Apple App Store using ‘PiSwift’ or combinations of the following keywords: Pi, Monte Carlo, simulation, method, math, mathematics, irrational, number, circle, radius. For ‘Atmospheric Model’ the keywords are: planet, sun, orbit, atmosphere, climate, radiation, albedo, emission, absorption, temperature, flux.
NOTE: Do not search e.g. only on ‘pi’ as the PiSwift app will be lost in a sea of hundreds of hits, a large number of which will have little to do with the mathematical concept of pi.
