Quaternions are numbers with 4 parts: one for time and three for space. Command Line Quaternions is a set of command line functions that generate thousands of points of quaternions, which are fed into animation software. This forms the foundations of analytic animations, a logical extension of analytic geometry.
FísicaLab is an educational application to solve physics problems. The problems are set up by adding elements from the palette to a chalkboard and entering the data for each element. The elements are objects such as blocks, pulleys, motors, and forces. It can use the SI and English unit systems, scientific notation, and many conversion factors. The types of problems that can be solved are kinematics of particles (including circular motion), static analysis of particles and rigid bodies in 2D, dynamic analysis of particles in 2D (excluding the dynamics of circular motion), heat, calorimetry, ideal gas, and expansion. The static and dynamic problems are entered by constructing the free body diagrams of the objects.
GaussianBeam is a Gaussian optics simulator. It features table-top display of the optical setup. It computes the beam parameters. You can move optics with the mouse. Available optics: lenses, flat and curved interfaces, mirrors, dielectric slab, and generic ABCD. Magic waist function: given a target waist, GaussianBeam finds the suitable arrangement of lenses. Fit waist function: measure the beam radius or diameter to define the input beam. The ability to save and load configurations.
QuBit is a library to support quantum superpositions in C++. This allows each variable of the CQuBit type to hold a number of different values at the same time. Normal mathematical operations can be performed on a QuBit, but they affect every value in the QuBit, at the same time. Binary operations on two QuBits cause a result based on every possible outcome.
TheCurves is an application that plots a parameterized family of curves based on algebraic formulas specified by the user. It is meant as an educational tool for mathematics, physics, and engineering. When the program is run as an applet in a Web page, the plot parameters and formulas are configurable by HTML and dynamically scriptable, so that the applet can be initialized to present a specific plot when the page is opened or to change plots when the user clicks on a control in the Web page.
Zeobuilder is a user-friendly GUI toolkit for the construction of advanced molecular models. It is extensible via a plugin framework and contains several advanced tools for building, aligning, manipulating, and analyzing molecular structures. It describes a molecular model with a hierarchical data-structure of reference frames. This facilitates operations on models at different levels of detail.
