Latest News & Works in Progress

Rebecca Nordhauser (Nordhr)

I created the following pages:
Kruskal's Algorithm
Content by Steve Cunningham
Transformations and Matrices I feel this page is completed, but I have not gotten any external feedback on it. I would like some comments before I submit it to be reviewed (I did not write the content). --July 1--

I left you some comments AnnaP
I responded to them. --Nordhr

Silhouette Edges This page is ready for comments. I'm not sure if I want to keep this image, but I don't know what I would replace it with. It was in the paper from Steve Cunningham. --July 5--

See my note on the discussion page. The text needs significant revision and additions to make the content accessible to someone who isn't already familiar with the content AnnaP 19:59, 29 July 2011 (UTC)

Surface Normals This page is also ready for comments/review (I did not write the content). --July 7--
Graphics Primitives
Matrix This is a helper page, and it is done (I did not write the content). --July 12--

I have made major changes to this page:
Volume of Revolution

Other Work:
I created the applet on my user page to convert hex color codes to 255 rgb and to percentages. I hope it will be useful to others as well! --July 18--
I made an applet for the seven bridges page. It should be up shortly! --August 3--

Future Plans:
Finish formatting Steve Cunningham's pages and making images for them.
An applet for the seven bridges page

I would love to make graphics or animations for someone. Email me or write on the discussion section of my user page.

I am currently working on the creation of a new page (or pages) with information
about music, pitch, and harmonics in relation to the fundamental frequencies, length,
and tension on guitar strings.

I've created an image page on Standing Waves which explains the nature of standing waves
in relation to musical instruments, and also explains the basics of harmonic series.
There is a demo flash app on the page which demonstrates how one would produce guitar harmonics.
Simply click the finger to start, and then click on the string at different intervals to find
the location of the harmonics.

Jennifer Chan (chanj)

I finished this page: Polar Equations. I made a Java applet to graph polar roses. To create all the images on the site, I used OpenGL with C++.
The page is submitted for final review.

  • I added in some comments for you to address. Please don't hesitate to ask me questions about what I've written. AnnaP 7/10
  • Sorry for the delay! I saw two small things to fix before I approve the page AnnaP 21:29, 26 July 2011 (UTC)

If anyone needs a Java applet, feel free to contact me at chanj6 at rpi dot edu.

Current work: I'm working on the Bounding Volumes page for Math for Computer Graphics and Computer Vision.
