This Demonstration takes two images of a letter in two different fonts and blends them. The user can choose both unique fonts from a predefined list as well as any letter in the English alphabet to blend. In addition, the user can choose to view the blended font with an overlay that shows the outline of the original letter (there is one overlay for the first font and one overlay for the second font). The overlays are generated from the corners of the letters and their purpose is to illustrate how the two letters blended. The user can also adjust the resolution of the final blended image to increase blending speed.
Ackermann steering geometry is a theoretical model for a steering system that has zero slip. It is achieved when all four wheels on a car are perpendicular to the same turning circle center. My Demonstration uses a simple three-bar linkage, which is a common approximation for Ackermann geometry. The linkage is arranged in a trapezoid so the wheel on the inside of a turn will angle more than the outside wheel.
This Demonstration models a quantum system called a coupled quantum harmonic oscillator, plotting the wavefunction and probability density of the displacements of two particles as if they were connected by a spring to a wall and to each other.
My experience at Mathematica Summer Camp was phenomenal because there is no other program that allows you to become part of this learning project that can teach you so much about yourself and the world.
