Chameleon Graphing - Whitcher Famous Curves Applet Index | Banach Matters
The Math Forum's six Problems of the Week are back in session for the 2000-2001 school year. Students are invited to submit solutions to Elementary, Middle School, Geometry, Algebra, Discrete Math, and Trig/Calculus problems: http://mathforum.com/pow/ .
From Astroid, Cardiod, Catenary, and Cayley's Sextic to the Trisectrix of Maclaurin, Tschirnhaus' Cubic, Watt's Curve, the Witch of Agnesi - and many more - click on the name of a curve to experiment with some of its associated curves. (Your browser must be capable of running Java.)
The Famous Curves Applet Index is hosted by the MacTutor History of Mathematics archive at St. Andrews:
Links to preprints of papers in Banach space theory and related fields, and archives of messages that have been sent to all subscribers to the associated list. In addition, the Recent section lists the most recent papers that have been added to the archive. The archive itself is a subset of the functional analysis section of the math archive at Los Alamos.
