Knot A Braid of Links: Past Links
The link for the week of:


An exciting view of the possibilities for changing the
paradigm of information access. Combining
mirroring and search tools with intelligent organization
results in fast direct access.


Probability in action  watch the coins flip and see the results for
your flips and lots of previous tries.


The ultimate version of a classic  Euclidean geometry, always beautiful,
enhanced with Java applets that allow varying the diagrams
illustrating the theorems. Instructive and tremendous fun.

All your favourites from 0 to Pi. Interesting articles with lots of
links.


One of many valuable and entertaining pages in the
Geometry Junkyard
a delightful compendium of computational and recreational geometry.


Something light this week  just what the title says, some you have
probably seen, some are not so well known.

A database of 500 pretty shots on the Mandelbrot set with
very easy navigation into the depths...


An interactive online text book for a Real Analysis course
by Bert G. Wachsmuth  not
complete yet, but has java applets and nicely linked content.


Jonathan Bowen's admittedly eclectic early example of a nicely
hyperlinked discussion of a mathematical subject. A longer version also
available.


Lots of fun problems and solutions  many pages with Java applets.


Over 1100 biographies with graphical birthplace maps and
chronological charts, plus a famous curves page with
some instructive Java applets.


A beautiful display of sculptures by John Robinson
with mathematical inspiration, and a discussion of some of
the associated mathematics by Ronald Brown.

Ask Dr. Math

Over 4800 questions answered! Mostly K12, but a wide
range of more advanced topics have been considered.


An interactive version of the famous cellular automaton game,
with several wellknown configurations preloaded.


Found on September 3, 1996 by a Cray. Fishing for more...


A nice Java application, and part of
Sprott's Fractal Gallery


Back to school with a Web site for school kids and others...


A fascinating study, and for some entertainment in a related way,
check out the
The Oracle of Bacon.


Some amusing and instructive applets (even Tetris)  more great work from
the Geometry Center, catch it before it folds!

July 21  August 3, 1996
Vie fractale

Labyrinthe d'images et texte qui vaut la visite.


Lots of pictures and information on calculating machines
from the abacus to the Curta. Who needs electronics!


A prototype of a mathematical symbol rendering system
via an `Internet mediator' service.


A new place to look for stimulating information on
interesting problems worth thinking about.


A collection of over 700 virtual reality polyhedra with
mathematical background and exercises.


Lot's of definitions and information, some of it with graphics.
Eric has treasure troves on other science subjects as well.

Several animated GIF graphics showing
how a 4dimensional cube intersects
our 3dimensional subspace, and a
reason to grab a VRML viewer.


Some beautiful surfaces and animations built from Fermat equations.
Check out the CICA Home page at
http://www.cica.indiana.edu/
for more fun.


Lots of fractal images and pointers to information on fractals all over
the net.


A gallery of striking displays of states of cellular automata with
recipes for their construction and related information, plus links
to related sites.


A growing list of plane curves treated with history, generation methods,
graphics and Mathematica animation available.


The title is apt  beautiful graphics that you can generate yourself
interactively with nice geometric content and explanations.
Worth more than
one visit.


An exciting implementation of new concepts for providing
mathematical information over the net.
The proceedings of a conference includes
articles with `mathactivated' links to interactive
and animated graphics.


A page with an impressive (and growing) list of biographies 
with pictures, dates and links to information on the work
of those profiled.

March 31  April 6, 1996
MATHART

Pictures from an exhibition of images created with mathematical
principles and ideas. The exhibition was held December 9, 1995 to
January 24, 1996 at Simon Fraser University in honour of the
50'th Anniversary Canadian Math Society Meeting.


"A multipurpose center for electronic distribution of information related
to topology
or
an attempt to create a global village in topology"


Des articles interessants avec des images visuelles remarquables.
Fascinating articles and highquality visuals  worth a visit even
for nonFrench speakers.


Many interesting and entertaining quotations, organized by author with
searching and random selection available.


A first educational page, all of MegaMath is worth a look.


A FAQ list with articles on subjects ranging from the
elementary to the Four Colour Theorem and the Axiom
of Choice  from the University of Waterloo.


A great variety of information about prime numbers, some of it quite
elementary, and some interesting links to other information on
primes, mathematical software and even history.


Many fractal images can be found here, and you can create your own
interactively. There is also a nonmathematical introduction
to the Mandelbrot and Julia sets.


A beautiful demonstration of mathematical visualization. here
you will find an impressive collection of knots and links viewed from a
mathematical perspective. The site is the work of Robert Scharein of UBC.
The Knot a Braid of Links page has taken inspiration from these images
and chosen his site as the first in the braid.
Do you know a special site to weave into the braid?
