I have:
* Q nodes (Q stick-stick intersections)
* a list 'NODES'=[(x,y,i,j)_1,........, (x,y,i,j)_Q], where each element (x,y,i,j) represent the intersection point (x,y) of the sticks i and j.
* a matrix 'H' with QxQ elements {H_k,l}.
H_k,l=0 if nodes 'k' and 'l' aren't joined by a edge, and H_k,l = R_k,l = the electrical resistance associated with the union of the nodes 'k' and 'l' (directly proportional to the length of the edge that connects these nodes).
* a list 'nodes_resistances'=[R_1, ....., R_Q].
All nodes with 'j' (or 'i') = N+1 have a electric potential 'V' respect all nodes with 'j' or 'i' = N.
Now i must apply NODAL ANALYSIS for determinate the electrical current through each of the edges, and the net current. I have no ideas about how to do that. Can you help me?
Thanks a lot!
Best regards

http://ask.sagemath.org/question/23624/nodal-analysis-in-network/?comment=32889#post-id-32889This link might help. Usually the linear equations for Kirchoff's laws are setup by inspection and solved numerically or a program like Spice (open source: Qucs) does it.
I think the question is how to use the incidence matrix and cycle matrix of the network graph and voltages/current to solve for current/voltage.
