Title: Department of Computer Science Seminar
Date: Wednesday, Sept. 25, 2002
Time: 4:00 pm to 5:00pm
Venue: Room N101, CSIT Building [108]
Speaker: Mr Hugh Fisher (DCS, ANU)

Flight Simulators In A Mathematical Space Abstract

Hugh Fisher has been collaborating with Dr Julie
Tolmie at Simon Fraser University in Vancouver on the
development of a visualiser for abstract mathematical
structures with dynamic variation over time. The program
is built on SGI Performer, a 3D toolkit heavily used by
flight simulator and Disneyworld entertainment authors.
The seminar will cover the project goals and experience
with using Performer and Python, but not the maths.
