### Finite differencing scheme for Hamilton's equation with planar linkages

I am trying to simulate the movement of a planar linkage in the plane whose position and momentum obey Hamilton's equations, which is to say that $${{dq}\over{dt}} = {{dH}\over{dp}}$$ and ...

### Solution of Helmholtz-Equation where Phase is restricted by additional PDE

Hello!
Let's say I have
$(\partial_x^2 + \partial_y^2 + a)f(x,y)=0$
with $f(x,y) \in \mathbb{C}$, ($\lim_{x,y \to \infty} f(x,y)=0$).
Now separate the Amplitude and Phase of the solution:
