Conformal Mapping Applet Introduction

Conformal mapping is regularly omitted from both undergraduate and graduate courses in electromagnetism because: At the same time, conformal mapping is an excellent tool for providing intellectual and visual connections to between equipotential surfaces and field lines for a wide variety of complex geometries.

The Conformal Mapping Applet was developed to be usable either as a simple visualizer for two-dimensional fields and potentials or as a very convenient interactive visualization tool to be used in conjunction with the study of conformal mapping.

The Conformal Mapping Applet is still under development. It is functional, but the documentation has not been completed. In particular, use of the parser to produce user defined conformal maps requires an extensive help menu. It is recommended that the reviewer choose from the menu of predefined maps and, if desired, experiment with the parser to generate user-defined maps.
