CindyJS

Mathematical Visualization on Modern Devices

Part of the Lecture Notes in Computer Science book series (LNTCS,volume 9725)

Abstract

The CindyJS Project brings interactive mathematical visualization to a broad variety of devices. Using projective geometry, homotopy methods and well tuned algorithms the CindyJS project is one of the first real time capable software projects in this field that at the same time approaches high-level mathematical descriptions and performance.

Keywords

  • Dynamic geometry
  • Interactive visualization
  • Projective geometry
