General Purpose Math Visualizer Package 

written by Larry Engelhardt

The General Purpose Math Visualizer Package performs mathematical tasks that are commonly encountered in physics: plotting, animating, numerically differentiating and integrating, and solving systems of coupled algebraic equations. For examples of how this package can be used to explore various physics problems, see the chapter "Using the Computer as a Black Box" at http://www.compadre.org/osp/items/detail.cfm?ID=11330.  A  significantly revised and expanded version of this package's plotting, animating, differentiating, and integrating programs is also available at http://www.compadre.org/osp/items/detail.cfm?ID=11593.

The General Purpose Math Visualizer Package was developed using the Easy Java  Simulations (Ejs) modeling tool.   It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the ejs_GeneralPurposeMath.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  An alternate version (ejs_GeneralPurposeMath_lowres.jar) is also included below that should fit on the  screen more nicely when using a display set to a low resolution.
