Interactive Visualizations with Mathematica

This project is part of an ongoing program aimed at creating interactive
Mathematica-based visualizations of interesting mathematical topics and
making these available to a broader audience through publication at the
Wolfram Demonstrations website, http://www.demonstrations.wolfram.com.
The ultimate goal is to develop a collection of attractive interactive
tools for use in instruction, outreach activities, and research.
The specific topics for these visualizations will be selected at
the beginning of the semester. See
http://www.math.illinois.edu/~ajh/ugresearch/wolfram-demonstrations.html
for topics covered in past semesters.


Students should have at least some basic familiarity with Mathematica by the
start of the project. At the beginning of the project, we will
provide additional training to help develop the particular skills
needed to create Mathematica-based visualizations.
