Some Algebra in Java
I've posted some software which I've written to do various algebraic computations in Java. You can learn more on my Java Algebra page.
Other software I have written that may be useful to someone:
I've written some examples.
- I've written a java class to decide whether a polynomial in some double variables has positive or
negative sign without the possibility of roundoff error.
I found writing this necessary because many geometric algorithms rely on determining what side of a line
a point lies on. This needs to be done consistently, or else the algorithm may produce wrong answers.
I'm sure there could be other applications.
A Tip on compiling applets
In the interest of producing an applet that can be run on most computers,
it is best to compile the applet for relatively old java versions. The list of release
dates for the various versions may be found on
Compilation with the "-target" option will ensure that it runs on an older java version.
For example compiling with "javac -target 1.3 yourapplet.java
" will produce an applet that runs
on systems as old as java version 1.3.
