A permanent IMAGINARY installation in the Mathematical Cabinet of the “Deutsches Museum” in Munich. At three interactive stations (Surfer, Cinderella and jReality) you can experience the beauty of mathematics and discover your own mathematical intuition by becoming creative yourself! The idea behind this installation is to bring the inconceivable or imaginary in mathematics to appear as an image.
Important notice: Unfortunately the Cinderella applets no longer work “out of the box”. There are two alternative ways, though:
2 - Just install Cinderella - the free dynamic geometry software and use it to open the .cdy source files. You find all Cinderella applet (cdy files) in the /en directory of the github repository.
Simply create geometrical constructions of different types, i. e. applications in non-Euclidian geometry, fractals or symmetry groups. Additionally, virtual physics simulations using masses, electric charge, fields, etc. can be carried out. All experiments are easily drawn with the mouse and get alive with a single click. Some of the applications presented have been devised especially for IMAGINARY. You can find special collections for mathematics and minerals, biology, physics, music or nature.
