3D-XplorMath (freely available Mathematical Visualization program)
Breather Surface

AQUI... (podem descarregar o programa livremente)

3D-XplorMath is a freely available Mathematical Visualization program. To download your personal copy of the latest version, click on the Download tab above. The older Pascal version runs only on Macintosh computers. However there is now also a cross-platform Java version, called 3D-XplorMath-J, and while it still has fewer features and Exhibits, we hope eventually to give it all the functionality of its older Pascal brother.
The program presents itself as series of galleries of different categories of interesting mathematical objects, ranging from planar and space curves to polyhedra and surfaces to ordinary and partial differential equations, and fractals.
Morever, the carefully chosen default parameters and viewing options may be changed by the user so that each gallery is turned into a experimental lab.
Each exhibit has its own online documentation with suggestions for how to explore it further. We hope in this way to make the program useful to the interested layperson, the teacher, and the research scientist
We are in the process of producing a series of short tutorial movies explaining various features of the program and also some interesting ways in which it can be used. In particular, you can click here to see a basic introduction to 3D-XplorMath and some of its Exhibits.
Most Exhibits of the Pascal version of 3D-XplorMath have associated to them a so-called "About This Object" PDF file that explains the mathematics behind the pictures. These files are also available here for separate download as a cross-platform zipped folder.
