They're downloadable! This is great stuff, thanks. Might as well add a link to Dean Dauger's web page for all the Mac folk interested in similar visualization software.

I've been using the the vector field applet in multivariable for years. It's really incredibly useful and well-designed. The ODE's one is neat, too. This vector field analyzer is another good one, with the ability to draw integral curves and "flow" whole polygonal regions... it almost becomes animated art.

Greg Egan, Science Fiction Author/Programmer also has a few interesting mathy applets on his site, although the visualizations tend to be of more obscure concepts related to his novels.

I think I'm going to risk a self link.

Thanks so much! This will actually come in handy for Physics II this semester.

as an electrical engineering-math double major, this is definitely the coolest thing i've seen. it really takes what we do in my digital signal processing lab to a new level.

thanks so much.
