This applet demonstrates coordinate transformations. Coordinate transformations
illustrated are: Rotation, Lorentz, Galilean. Additional applets show how the
Lorentz transformation effects the electric field of an electron thereby
producing both magnetic fields and synchrotron radiation.

Applet runs smoothly.
