Description: More than 90 JAVA applets that range from the elementary concepts of vector, bivector, outer product, and rotations, to triangle relationships, oscillations, and polarized waves. A special group of 21 applets illustrates three geometrically different approaches to the representation of conics; and even more ways to describe ellipses. Next Clifford's famous circle chain theorem is illustrated, and finally, geometric applications important for crystallography and structural mechanics give a glimpse of the potential for applied mathematics.
