GR Embedding Program

educational validator: Bethany Zach

The GR Embedding program displays a representation of the curvature of space near a massive object.  

GR Embedding is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of General Relativity.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the gr_embedding.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  Other programs provide additional visualizations.  They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or General Relativity.
