Online Experiments and Visualization with JavaView

Konrad Polthier

The talk is a case study on our web-based geometric research experiments, and on creating an online publication of the results. All the numerical experiments are done in a web browser, therefore, the current research could be simultaneously done in Berlin and in Kobe/Japan together with my coauthor Wayne Rossman.

For the numerics and visualization of geometric experiments my group in Berlin has developed a Java based software JavaView, which is the basis of our numerical experiments. We encountered the problem, that our newest research should be published as an online-paper including the experiments as Java applets, but currently there does not exist the possibility of a reviewed publication yet.

Some experimental pages with JavaView applets are accessible at
