One of the better Fourier synthesis applets, but it is most frustrating that the
small display window is used to show more than 8 fundamental periods of
oscillation for the wave. As a result, the user can't really see the effect of
harmonics beyond the first few. The author should modify the applet to show
just one or two fundamental periods.

One of the most useful applets. Highly recommended. Applet works smoothly, and theinterface is well-designed.
