A Minkowski Diagram is a space-time plot for events that have a relative velocity that is a significant fraction of the speed of light. It takes the effects of Special Relativity and puts them into a easily understood form. I created a Mathematica function to draw and plot events on a Minkowski Diagram. It can draw the graph, add grid lines, plot points, add spacial/time reference lines, and show when a space time event is observed in either frame. Its quite easy to use, and example is in the notebook on how to use the function.Read More
I finally finished the first “What’s My Stage On?” beta. The only issue that I know about is rotation on the iPad. I’m sure there will be plenty more, that’s what beta testing is for.
Since I realized that most people don’t have mathematica, here’s a video of the program.
This is the first version of my 2-D platformer game Portal for Mathemetica. It’s a bit slow, be patient, I’m working on making it faster.
To Play: Download and open the notebook and evaluate all of the cells. The game will be at the bottom of the notebook. Use the buttons, or enable the keyboard (Controlls: move: A/D portals: #’s 1-9 on your keypad)
