Programs

Programs are software modules that can be used at home, in schools, at exhibitions or in museums. They all work on standard hardware and have special settings and specifications for public installations, like kiosk mode, touch screen interface or support for novel hardware devices. The programs are the core element of this platform, visually attractive and highly interactive, enabling you to explore and to create mathematics.

Every year several earthquakes occur on planet Earth with severe loss of human lives. During an earthquake most of us already experienced the vibrations at the Earth’s surface due to the propagation of the seismic waves along the crust. The main question we intend to answer with this project is...

This project consists of five different “experiences” related to Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE): Cartography, Dynamical system, Wator, Temperature and Cellular automata....

This exhibit explores the science of cartography and the geometry of the sphere. The geometric properties of the sphere and the plane are essentially different, and no map can faithfully represent the Earth without distortion. This module goes through some of this properties, comparing different...

This interactive module illustrates, in a historical context, the rhumb lines on the Earth and the spirals that correspond to a remarkable family of their projections in the plane....

Dune Ash is an interactive simulation of a volcano eruption in Europe. You can place a volcano, add a wind field and explore the ash cloud dispersing in time....

3D_XPLORMATH is one of the most comprehensive programs to explore mathematics. Countless objects, animations and possibilities invite the user to even experience them using 3D glasses!...

jReality allows you to experience mathematical objects in a virtual reality environment. Users can climb on huge mathematical objects, enter them and perceive them as “real” objects. Like in a computer game one approaches the different objects using a space navigator....

With Morenaments you can easily paint symmetrical patterns in one of the 17 symmetry groups of the Euclidian space. Discover geometrical properties and investigate their inner structure of spinning centers and mirror axes. Or feel free to paint in a creative way and experience how a few strokes...

With SURFER you can experience the relation between formulas and forms, i. e. mathematics and art, in an interactive way. You can enter simple equations that produce beautiful images, which are surfaces in space.
