Thompson's Transformations
rating: 0+x

Computer program written by O'Connor and Robertson based on d'Arcy Thompson’s view that the basic processes of evolution and development can be understood mathematically via biological transformations. The program studies the precise analytic form of these transformations by allowing users to alter pictures in real time by varying parameters in mathematical functions describing the transformations, thus seeing the picture change from, say, one fish to another.
