    Kali - Windows and Macintosh | Stella (Great and Small)
      MathML and Math on the Web International Conference


                          KALI 
               for Windows and Macintosh 

       http://thames.northnet.org/weeks/index/Kali.html

  Based on Kali for Unix by Nina Amenta, Jeff Weeks has 
  recently written a Windows version of this software to 
  complement the Macintosh version that had been available.
  
  Kali lets you draw symmetrical patterns based on any of the 
  17 tiling groups. It was written for a broad audience, with 
  attention to the needs of young children and older students 
  alike.

  Wallpaper, frieze and rosette groups can be systematically 
  explored using Kali. The Show Singularities command and the 
  Conway and IUC notation provide support for a theoretical 
  analysis.

          STELLA (GREAT AND SMALL) - Robert Webb

      http://home.connexus.net.au/~robandfi/Stella.html

  Great Stella lets you create all uniform/dual polyhedra and 
  their many stellations, and print out nets for building them.

  Small Stella, a "lite" version with limited features and 
  sets of models, is intended as an educational tool for 
  schools.
 
  The software is for Windows only. Free limited demos are 
  available, as is Robert Webb's research on stellations.

  discuss current research and applications, with major 
  emphasis on MathML and technologies that ease the use of 
  mathematical and scientific content on the Web. It is the 
  aim of this conference to bring together those people 
  involved in creating the future of mathematics on the Web. 

  The conference format includes invited speakers, tutorials,
  contributed papers, posters, and software demonstrations.
  Participation is sought in all areas. Submission guidelines
