Welcome to my Java Web page. As a software developer I have been impressed by the capabilities of Java, especially it's ability of running code located on the Web. Here you will find some chosen samples of applets that I have written to illustrate that point.

Featured here is an image viewer that conveniently renders the image in a resizable window containing scrollbars. I have also included a more scientific application, namely least-squares fitting of discrete data to a continuous function. A very general choice of approximating functions are offered: nth degree linear and polynomial expansions. Of course your basic least-squares line is also included in these general categories. The output window is editable, so the user can conveniently select, copy and paste it's content into a local file.The graph of functions of one variable can also be plotted. Because of it's usefulness as an analysis tool, this applet will undoubtedly become a welcome addition to students and scientists alike who can now acquire their results using their favorite Web browser.

For the record, I have designed these applets to run on any Java-enabled browser, although I have only been able to test them on Explorer 3.0 and Netscape 4.05 for Windows. Any feedback from users of different environments would be appreciated.
