Images and movies

  1. Crack propagation. (to do)
  2. Spiral waves.  (to do see also publications and details)

Some programs

  1. A small unix script that creates eps figures using the epslatex terminal in
  2. Small fortran 90 procedure that creates a postscript file with a color map out of a 2D array and how to make it create jpeg files on the fly on a unix like system. (to do).
