Brook for GPUs is a compiler and runtime implementation of the Brook stream programming language for modern graphics hardware. The goals for this project are to demonstrate general purpose programing on GPUs, to provide a useful tool for developers who want to run applications on GPUs, and to research the stream language programming model, streaming applications, and system implementations.
Burr Tools is a set of programs for solving some kinds of puzzles, namely puzzles that are made out of square, cube-shaped, spherical, or triangular units, and whose solution also contains only pieces aligned along those grids. The program finds assemblies for the puzzle and animates how you have to assemble for some of them.
Championship Generator produces a list of all the meetings which must occur between the participants of a championship. It can be used to produce the challenges between teams if competitions are not foreseen to directed elimination. It supports championships where it is necessary to consider the matches at home and away. It can also try to avoid fights between the big teams in the first and last days. It also supports the case in which two teams have a mutual stadium, and therefore cannot simultaneously play at home or away.
Exhaustive Game Solver is a series of Perl scripts in which the computer plays either Coin Strip, Welter's game, or Mancala against the user. In the case of Sudoku, it solves the puzzle. The scripts use a recursive algorithm in which the game tree is searched for sure winners, positions from which the computer cannot lose. Since the search is CPU intensive, lookup tables have been generated.
Fract is a Web-based fractal zoomer for the Mandelbrot set. It has no advanced features, for the goal is to keep the code easy to read for someone interested in fractals. The package also includes an offline renderer that you can use to generate high resolution images of your favorite spots. You can also easily play with the color map.
Hydra Slayer is a Roguelike game focused on one thing: slaying Hydras. It is inspired by mathematical puzzles about brave heroes slaying many-headed beasts. Since each weapon can only cut off a specific number of heads (no more, no less), and then the Hydra regrows some of the lost heads, to defeat each Hydra, you need to find the sequence of attacks which kills it in the least number of wounds. Hydra Slayer also features divisor weapons, blunt weapons to stun heads, missiles, and shields, and a number of other magical items which are unique to this game.
