GR Embedding Program
Mario Belloni, and
The GR Embedding program displays a representation of the curvature of space near a massive object. 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.
GR Embedding is part of a suite of Open Source Physics programs that model aspects of General Relativity. Other programs provide additional visualizations. They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or General Relativity.
