Two-dimensional collisions  
Fowler's Physics Applets: (Michael Fowler - Unoversity of Virginia Physics) One ball strikes another. Change relative masses, initial velocity, and angle of the collision. Watch it in the center of mass and lab frame. It makes the collision angles very clear, and the controls are sort of fun.

Space and Time in Special Relativity  
The special theory of relativity is the result of two postulates: The laws of physics are the same in all inertial reference frames & the speed of light in empty space is the same for all inertial frames. From the above two postulates, our understanding of space and time has to be modified. This Java applet invites you to the world of space and time in special relativity.

Einstein's Explanation of Brownian Motion  
Fowler's Physics Applets: (Michael Fowler - University of Virginia Physics) This applet shows how atomic velocities cause the Brownian Motion of a dust particle. In one panel a small ball jitters. In the next, we see that it jitters because many smaller balls bat it rapidly about.

Analysis Studio  
Java Analysis Studio is an application for High Energy Physics data analysis. It allows analysis of data from a wide range of data sources including PAW ntuples, SQL databases, flat files, hippo files, and (in future releases) ROOT files and Objectivity databases. Java Analysis Studio is a client-server based application, allowing desktop access to data stored anywhere on the internet. The network protocol is optimized to allow rapid access to data even over slow network connections. Java Analysis Studio provides an easy to use graphical user interface. Users can in addition write analysis modules using the Java Language, using a set of histogramming utilities provided as part of Java Analysis Studio.

One-dimensional one-atom classical gas  
Fowler's Physics Applets: (Michael Fowler - Unoversity of Virginia Physics) This applet describes a single atom gas moving in one dimension. It accelerates or decelerates only through classical collisions with the moving piston on its container. This alone is enough to explain why the gas gets warm when it is compressed and cool when expanded.
