Three applets that may be of interest to M337 students
To run these applets you need to have a version of the Java Runtime Environment installed. If you cannot see the first applet on this page you should visit from Java home page where you can download the software.
The first applet allows you to plot a complex number and then plot the roots.
- Plot the original number by clicking the mouse on the complex plane.
- Choose the number of roots wanted and then
press "Find Roots".
- Move the number around with the mouse and watch how the roots behave. The
principal root is the dark blue one.
There are new improved applets available at a page containing a variety of java applets.
