A mathematical model for the number of subscribers to two competing cable TV companies is presented. An applet is included, allowing the user to experiment with the model. The theory behind the model is mentioned and two specific assignments related to the model are given.

APPROPRIATE COURSES:

Introductory/Intermediate Linear Algebra

SOFTWARE SPECIFICATIONS:

Netscape Navigator 6 is really the way to go with this page. Works in IE 5.5, but not in 5.0. Behavior in NN 4 seems generally acceptable but quirky. Works with a recent Mozilla build, too. (The source of these problems is most likely the TextArea class, which is buggy.)

Systems supported: IE 5/Win98, Netscape 4.7/Win98
