Java Microscope
This program produces a vector field where M is the i component and N is the j component (i.e. F(x,y) = M(x,y)i+N(x,y)j). It may take some time for the graph to load after pressing the "Draw Vector Field" button. To create a magnifying lens, drag your mouse across the vector field. Use numpoints less than 20 (20 X 20 vector lines) for quick response. Larger values will work, but take much longer. For more information on the Java Microscope read , An interactive JAVA microscope to visualize divergence and curl via zooming.  NEW:   be sure to check out the new and improved flow routines.
