- c code animation with PGPLOT

BRINGING in the VISUALIZATION, ctd
I want to motivate to visualize! not so important how.
Not MATHEMATICA for general physicist use - oriented to mathematicians; MATLAB good for engineers and neither is free.
PGPLOT is a physics (actually astronomy) code.
Again, guided examples and very little coding beyond parameter adjustment make it easy.
Although early PGPLOT projects were given to aid in preparing class material, more recently very few are given.
The exception, at left required animation, control of color and line visualization with good resolution. PGPLOT to the rescue.
Physicist codes - excellent resolution for axis labels and indicators. Both irritating to do properly with MATHEMATICA/MATLAB.
