Many of the pages I've developed or maintain are making use of JavaTM or JavaScriptTM ... but hopefully only where appropriate!

Java promises a lot: platform-independence, ubiquity, etc, and, in fact is a lot of fun, but it is still a little rough around the edges.

If you are interested in various Java tools and GUI widgets I've developed, see my Java page.

If you are experiencing problems with any of my Applets you might want to check the notes I wrote about problems encountered with HotGAMS.

Computer Algebra

Many other projects involve computer algebra wherein I find myself using Macsyma, Maple or Mathematica, or perhaps others.
