A geometric laboratory
The following is a list of demos (under construction) that illustrate
concepts, notions and results from the theory of curves and surfaces. You
are invited to input parametrizations of your own choice and to watch what
happens. Often you have to activate the scroll bar in order to see something
moving. Zooming is performed by two left mouse clicks indicating the two
boarder points of the rectangle you want to zoom in. A rotation (in 3D) is
performed by dragging along the figure with the left button of your mouse.
The demos use Java applets. You might have to download Java, in particular
Java 2, before starting. Have fun!
