Author:Matthias Kawski; Arizona State University
Description: An applet for visualization of, and experimentation with, many aspects of vector calculus. These include zooming to see the derivative of a vector field (including divergence and scalar curl), visualizing the action of the (nonlinear and linearized) flow(s) on entire regions of initial conditions, and many aspects of line integrals, especially translation invariance in linear fields, and existence of the limit of the ratio of line integral divided by area (independent of the shape of the curve). Provides visual support for both contravariant (arrows) and covariant (stacks) fields, and flows in cylindrical and toroidal domains.
