# Issues with numpy.linspace()

The following code:

```
# Restricted Three Body Problem
# Plotting x,y,dx,dy
# Import
import numpy as np
from scipy.integrate import odeint
import matplotlib.pyplot as plt
# Variables
a,x,y,u,v,xdot,ydot,udot,vdot = var('a,x,y,u,v,xdot,ydot,udot,vdot')
# Sun-Jupiter Ratio
Em = 317.83
Ms = 5.9736*10^24
Sm = Em/Ms
b = Sm/(1+Sm)
# Restricted Three Body Problem
def r3bp(a,x,y,t):
a = b
x = x[0]
y = y[0]
u = u[0]
v = v[0]
xdot = u
ydot = v
udot = -(1-a)*((x-a)/(sqrt((x-a)^2 + y^2))^3)-a*((x+1-a)/(sqrt((x+1-a)^2 + y^2))^3)+x+2*v
vdot = -(1-a)*(y/(sqrt((x-a)^2 + y^2))^3)-a*(y/(sqrt((x+1-a)^2 + y^2))^3)+y-2*u
return[xdot,ydot,udot,vdot]
# Initial conditions
x0 = -0.509
y0 = 0.883
u0 = 0.0259
v0 = 0.0149
t = np.linspace(0,100,num=1000)
x,y,u,v = odeint(r3bp,x0,y0,u0,v0,t)
# Data
x = x[:,0]
y = y[:,0]
u = u[:,0]
v = v[:,0]
# Plot functions
px = plt.plot(t,x)
py = plt.plot(t,y)
pu = plt.plot(t,u)
pv = plt.plot(t,v)
plot.show(px)
plot.show(py)
plot.show(pu)
plot.show(pv)
```

produces the following error:

```

Hi nooniensoong97

you should use the code button (the one marked 101. I think there is a lot of syntax errors in your code.

have a look at this post : coupled second order differential equation

maybe it could help you ?

So strange so that I wonder if your message is not a troll ? Sorry if it is not.

How could there be a lot of syntax errors? I was following a couple of youtube videos on ODE?

Anyways thanks for the link to the other example. I had to change a few things around. I still needed to have access each individual data for other data analysis. So I used the .tolist() function on the generated arrays.

I regret my remark, it comes from the fact that the first time I looked at your message, the indentation was not correct, I don't know why, but when I came back a few hours later everything was ok, sorry

The way the code appeared while the code portions of the question were not properly formatted as code, the asterisks for multiplication (

`*`

) were interpreted as markdown for "italics" and thus not displayed, which could give the impression of syntax errors.@nooniensoong97 -- if you managed to solve the problem, please post the solution as an answer here, and accept the answer so that the question is marked as solved.
