ZMap - A Complex Function Plotter

Author(s): 
Bert G. Wachsmuth

Summary

ZMap is a Java applet that helps students visualize the graphs of complex-valued functions. Such graphs are four-dimensional objects and therefore can not be shown easily, but with ZMap students can investigate how curves in a domain change as they are mapped by a complex function to its range.
