Computes the farthest pair of points in a set of points, implementing convex hull finding and anti-podal analysis.
Interactive Mandelbrot set generator with corresponding julia sets using complex number implementation. The view is zoomable, displaying closer snapshots of the sets. They are displayed using an rgb color scale.
The project titled "The Germ-inator" examined the comparison of natural and synthetic anti-microbials. An innovative technique was used to gather precise measurements for bacterial reduction. By taking digital photographs of a petri-dish, a pixel to mm ratio could be determined. Then, specific fine measurements on the dish could be determined through digital analysis.
