Finite field plotter (Alexander
This applet allows you to input a prime p, and then
draw pictures of lines, circles and some other selected
conics over the field with p elements.
The applet is the work of Alexander Ma,
a graduate student in mathematics at UNSW in 2005.
How to use it:
Lines are drawn by holding the mouse over the plane
to specify an initial point, and then moving it to a
second point. Circles are drawn by starting with a center,
and then finding a point on the circle. The coordinates
of the current point are visible at all times. You may
store different curves, using different shapes and colours.
