Animation for the Kuramoto model

I have spent a lot of my time studying the Kuramoto model of oscillators, which is an intuitive and tractable model to study synchronisation phenomena.

In order to present it, I think it is very helpful to play around with the evolution. For this I created a simple webpage, which runs the model in the browser using Javascript:

Once you loaded the page, everything is done in your browser and no Internet connection is needed. In particular, you can just save the page and use it without any connection.

Please note, that the numerical code seems to give the correct behaviour, but it has not been thoroughly tested! Moreover, it has only been tested using recent versions of Firefox and Chrome.

I am looking forward to any comments!
