McCullough Effect. Read this first: If you fol­low the in­struc­tions below, you will change your brain for a pro­longed time (up to month), in ad­di­tion to sim­ply re­mem­ber­ing this.

Pro­ceed only if this is ok with you. What to see Ini­tially you will see a sim­ple 2×2 checker­board con­sist­ing of hor­i­zon­tally and ver­ti­cally striped squares. And the stripes will be black-white, no colour. Fine so far. What to do Se­lect the radio but­ton “Adapt”. When you feel you have adapted suf­fi­ciently long (no need to pay at­ten­tion to colours or stripes, just fol­low the fix­a­tion let­ters), switch back to the radio but­ton “Test” (or press Reset). If you ro­tate your head or the screen, you can ob­serve that the colours will at­tach to the other set of lines.

Fluid Simulator

E-mail: Fluid Instructions: You can drag the fluid around with your mouse and adjust the sliders at the top to change the properties of the fluid in real-time. Please check out this video if you're having trouble figuring out what the sliders do. It requires Java to run. Check out my newest app: Grantophone! More cool demos!

For interpolation, I use the quadratic B-spline presented here: Analysis and Reduction of Quadrature Errors in the Material Point Method. Instead of integrating the density over time (which is what most of the MPM papers do), I do a density summation every frame. Material Parameters Some of these parameters are hard to explain in one or two sentences (and a couple I made up) so I'll also link you to their corresponding Wikipedia pages. The Planetarium.

Surya Siddhantha Planetary Model. This animation illustrates the geocetric model of the Surya Siddhantha.

Surya Siddhantha Planetary Model

The Surya Siddhantha models both the diurnal as well as orbital motions of the celestial bodies around the Earth. Diurnal motion is modeled by making all the celestial bodies including the fixed stars of the zodiac (i.e. Nakshatra Mandala) orbit the Earth at a rapid rate.

Frontier of Physics: Interactive Map

They have craved an understanding of the underlying order in the world.” In the quest for a unified, coherent description of all of nature — a “theory of everything” — physicists have unearthed the taproots linking ever more disparate phenomena. With the law of universal gravitation, Isaac Newton wedded the fall of an apple to the orbits of the planets. Albert Einstein, in his theory of relativity, wove space and time into a single fabric, and showed how apples and planets fall along the fabric’s curves. And today, all known elementary particles plug neatly into a mathematical structure called the Standard Model.
