1-D and 2-D Cellular Automata Images and software.This site is devoted to Cellular Automata, one of the most intriguing and admirable aspects of mathematics. Check out the freeware program, MCELL, downloadable from this site. This program sets new standards in the field and was obviously crafted by a uniquely talented developer (Mirek Wojtowicz).
Hundreds of examples of full color photomicrographs (photographs taken through a microscope). Java animations provided. Microscopy tutorial and hundreds of microscopy links. Also includes a microscopy museum.
Scientific WorkPlace is the convergence of state-of-the-art word processing and the Maple® computer algebra system. This tool is rapidly emerging as a worldwide standard. It is a must for anyone preparing scientific and/or technical documents. One need not know TEX to use it, but, TEX users simply love it.
There are also a number of Amateur Science Sites worthy of your attention, e.g.,
Don’t fooled by the modest homepage. There is a wealth of interesting and important material on this unique web site. You’ll find yourself spending a lot of time there and you’ll have a rich and rewarding experience.
Unquestionably one of the best, if not the best, web sites for astro- photography, on the WWW. In additional to some of the most beautiful photographs you’ll find anywhere, the author provides an extremely rich set of articles on astro-photography and a wealth of links. Be prepared to spend some time at this site. If you are interested in astro-
photography this is a “must-visit” site. You will simply be amazed at what you find. Jerry Lodriguss has made an artform of astro-photography.
The work presented at this site sets new standards for amateur spectroscopic research. It reaffirms once again that serious amateurs can provide excellent research even when limited by time, funding and support. If you have any interest in spectroscopy of the heavens, don’t miss this site.
