Should be handed in every **Sunday night by 21:00** following the Monday lecture.
Assignments should be **individual** and should be in python and **provide a
correct virtual environment!**

For help getting started with virtual environments, please read carefully Python Virtual Environments for Pip and Python Virtual Environments for Conda.

You should email 3 things to Onur (**onurc@physik.uzh.ch, office: Y11-F74**):

- The working
**python source code** - The
**requirements.txt**file for your virtual environment - A
**.pdf**or**.png**image or animation of the output of your program

Template: template.zip

** Instructions: **

Please add the names of the people you work together (if you do) to the comment section of your python scripts.

Create a virtual environment using

Pip

- run **virtualenv yourenv_name** to create a virtual environment

- run **source yourenv_name/bin/activate** to activate yourenv_name

- install necessary libraries that you want using **pip install package_name**

- work in that directory, get your outputs (*.pdf, *.png, *jpeg, *.mp4, etc…)

- run **pip freeze > requirements.txt** to get your list of libraries

Conda

- run **conda create -n yourenvname python=x.x anaconda** to create a virtual environment

- run **source activate yourenvname** to activate yourenv_name

- install necessary libraries that you want using **conda install -n yourenv_name package_name**

- work in that directory, get your outputs (*.pdf, *.png, *jpeg, *.mp4, etc…)

- run **conda list –export > requirements.txt** to get your list of libraries
