A tool for interactive exploration of high dimensional
What is NDimViewer?
NDimViewer is a web-based visualization system for numerical
approximation of dynamical systems and representation of the calculated
data using the techniques mentioned above. It is specialized for high dimensional
dynamical systems with a dimension count up to 25, depending on the chosen
technique. The implementation itself is separated
into a calculation and a visualization part, which are treated independently.
The system is implemented in Java
1.2 and uses the extension classes of Java3D,
Ver. 1.1. For MS Windows-systems, a short description
about what you need to get your browser running NDimViewer is given here.
First of all, you need the Java 1.2 Plugin (available
at java.sun.com) to run the applet
in Netscape Navigator or MS Internet Explorer. The Java3D extension
classes are available at java.sun.com,
Install the Java 1.2 Plugin onto your system.
Install the Java3D extension classes into the same directory.
Try to launch the applet and check, if you can get a 3D output.
If so, the installation is complete.
Otherwise make sure, that the following files, belonging
to Java3D, are present in the following directories:
J3D.dll and j3daudio.dll
and vecmath.jar in ...\javasoft\jre\1.2\lib
If the applet still doesn't work, please refer to the Plugin-Homesite
at Sun or Java3D-Mailing-List-Archive.
To make the expressiveness of the new techniques visible,
two practical examples are outlined using EPC,
For offline-execution the whole application can be downloaded
and installed on the local system. The archive also contains the source-code
of the classes to allow individual modifications of the applet. Please
me, if you do any changes or extensions of NDimViewer.
