Shadow Band Simulations

Created MATLAB code to simulate shadows produced by the sun shining through single and dual lenses in an attempt to simulate shadow bands. Shadow bands are undulating bands of shadows produced on at the beginning and end of totality for solar eclipses, but their causes are not known and have never been successfully simulated. Research conducted for Professor Lyzenga at Harvey Mudd College. [Spring 2013]
