I browsed through your work and I think I will use it. It accurately present concepts and material when I read your work. It is appropriate for people who doing poorly like me. I will find easy to use because I think it will fit me best.

This is a demonstration of the Lorenz strange attractor. Starting points can be ?clicked in? with the mouse. The applet then plots the path of a particle with this starting position as it moves towards the attractor. This can be used to demonstrate how quickly particles move towards the attractor.

Technical Remarks:

Runs fine in WIN98 and Explorer.
