In several scientific disciplines, mathematical functions are used to describe objects representing phenomena or processes. Hereby, an efficient choice has to be made between different ways of representation, depending on the specific setting. Then, a visualization tool can be of great help to actually see the object, especially if it is situated in a two or three dimensional space. The program VisuMath is precisely developed for that purpose. So, VisuMath visualizes curves and surfaces in two or three dimensional Euclidean spaces.
This website describes the most recent version, this is version 3.0 of VisuMath. Great effort has been put into the program to combine high quality visual output with ease of use. It is developed especially for research and educational purposes and is free of charge for these purposes. Within the program, one can switch between English and Dutch but other languages can be added if one is willing to do some effort. In the helpfile of VisuMath 3.0, it is explained how this can be achieved.
Technical information about VisuMath.
- System requirements:
- Processor: preferably Pentium III or higher
- Windows operating system: Windows XP or higher
- Screen resolution: preferably 1024x768 or higher
- Memory space:
- Internal memory is allocated dynamically depending on what the program needs. So depending on the complexity of the necessary calculations, memory will be allocated. The more free memory that is available, the more complex models can be visualized.
- All computers with an age of four years or less should be capable of handling all visualization options implemented in the program. Having a fast graphics adapter, however, improves the performance of changes in the visualization such as viewpoint changes for models consisting of lots of triangles (more than 150000 for instance).
- MS Internet Explorer (version 5 or higher) equiped with a VRML-viewer such as for instance the Cortona VRML Client (can be downloaded from the Internet from the coordinates www.parallelgraphics.com/products/cortona/).
