Complex Function Plot Program Documents

Main Document

Complex Function Plot Program 

written by Wolfgang Christian

The Complex Function Plot program displays a user-defined complex function of position and time using representations that map phase into color.   The default complex function is a time-dependent complex Gaussian and the representation can be changed by selecting a radio button.  Additional parameters can be specified using the Display | Switch GUI menu item.  

Complex Function Plot is an Open Source Physics program written for the teaching of mathematical methods in the sciences.  It is distributed as a ready-to-run (compiled) Java archive.  Double clicking the math_complex_function_plot.jar file will run the program if Java is installed.  Other mathematical methods programs are also available.  They can be found by searching ComPADRE for Open Source Physics, OSP, or Math.
