Oorange is a virtual laboratory for experimental mathematics. It consists of a set of infrastructure services supporting the creation, execution, and dissemination of mathematical experiments. For each component of a traditional physical experiment, there is a corresponding Oorange infrastructure feature. These include but are not restricted to

  • a computational network editor for assembling software objects into larger units, and performing update of the resulting graph;
  • interpreted scripting control of each computational node;
  • a comprehensive inspection service for looking at and changing the values of all objects in the system;
  • large class library of objects (Objective-C) applicable to a wide range of domains;
  • fully integrated animation protocol for dynamic processes;
  • 2D and 3D viewers with open architectures;
  • generous HTML documentation on classes and many tutorials;
  • a full contingent of examples that will get you started in a wide variety of application areas. Look here for a short description of examples with typical images generated by each.
