This small applet is only a proof-of-concept for what hopefully will develop into a much larger
library of visualization tools which which eventually will include many additional features ....
    ((This was a little exercise trying out the event-handling of JAVA 2 -- before tackling the
      large task of updating the vector field analyzer to JAVA 2........))
At this time we plan to develop a few, considerably more sophisticated demo applets, and to
design the basic - common - architecture in the form of reusable JAVA-beans. These should
be flexible and powerful enough to allow undergraduate students and instructors alike to quickly
develop new applets -- allowing them to concentrate on the mathematical heart while at the same
time providing a common architecture and basic touch and feel...
Anybody who interested in joining this project please send email to Matt Kawski.

Note that this applet handles the branch-cuts (when drawing curves in the right window) generally
correcly and gracefully -- but every once-in-a-while it connects "the wrong" points......
Future versions will allow the user to draw regions, and to enter formulas for the maps. For sample
images for the later visit the MAPLE-library for the 1999 Fall class "Applied Complex Analysis".


This trial worked for me -- to learn enough JAVA 2 to update the vector field analyzer -- but it appears to be rather finicky: AT some times it runs well under IE 5 and NETSCAPE 4.6, but at other times it just can't start NETSCAPE......... too bad, the playing time of Xmas break is over, and I may not have time to revisit this exploratory design unitl much later in the spring......
