This electronic archive is open for any geometer to publish new geometric models, or to browse this site for material to be used in education and research. These geometry models cover a broad range of mathematical topics from geometry, topology, and to some extent from numerics.

This site contains an encyclopedic collection of information about mathematical functions. The site also details the interrelationships between the special functions of mathematical physics and the elementary functions of mathematical analysis as well as the interrelationships between the functions in each group.

GCLC (Geometry Constructions -> LaTeX converter)

GCLC (Geometry Constructions -> LaTeX converter) is a tool for easy making geometrical (but not only geometrical) figures. It provides easy-to-use support for many geometrical constructions, isometric transformations, general conics, etc. Making figures is based on the idea of "describing figures'' rather than of "drawing figures''. Thus, this approach stresses the fact that geometrical constructions are abstract, formal procedures and not figures. A figure can be generated on the basis of abstract description, in Cartesian model of a plane. GCLC had several releases since 1996 and it has been used for producing digital illustrations for a number of books and journal volumes. GCLC comes in versions for command line (DOS/Windows and Linux) and in MS Windows version.

LinKnot

The `Mathematica`-based program `LinKnot` is the
extension of the program
`KNOT2000` by M. Ochiai and N. Imafuji.
Among other things, it contains a database of knots and links
with at most 12 crossings,
as well as an extensive database of basic polyhedra.
