|Eric A. Carlen|
|A collection of calculus applets, two packages of Java classes used for writing such applets, and full documentation of the packages and their use, with source code for all the sample applets. Applet topics include: the basins of attraction for Newton's method in one dimension, two dimension integration in Cartesian coordinates with Riemann sums, modulus of continuity for functions of one variable, fixed points of functions and the solution of fixed point equations by iteration, the fundamental theorem of algebra, the Newton-Raphson method for finding roots in one and two variables, the Lagrange multipliers method for solving constrained optimization problems, secant lines and their relation to tangent lines for graphs of a single variable, tangent lines to graphs of a single variable, Riemann sums for integrals of a single variable, and the quadratic approximation used in Simpson's rule.|
