Introduction to Anaglyph Stereoscopy in Excel – part #1: a more efficient composite rotation in the 3D Cartesian space

05/04/2011

I made a stereoscopic model in October last year, however, choosing the wrong colors (red and blue on a black background, the effect was very weak (if any). This series was suggested to me last week by one of the guests here on the website, Don L. (thanks Don!), who sent me his stereoscopic cube. I opened the model, put on my goggles and his cube literally popped out of the…

TRANSPOSE() & MMULT() – two important Excel spreadsheet functions for matrix manipulations

04/11/2011

This is a tutorial introducing two important matrix manipulation spreadsheet functions in Excel: the matrix transposition function TRANSPOSE() and the matrix multiplication function MMULT(). These functions are a bit harder to use than the regular spreadsheet functions in the sense that the result is a matrix and a matrix cell range is treated by the program as a unity (you cannot change the formula since you cannot operate on a single cell). There are some…

A 2D Random Walk Animation Tutorial

03/26/2011

This tutorial explains how to build two animated random walk models, one where the particle is confined to square grid and one where the particle is free to step in any direction. The first model is adequate for modeling particle movement in solids while the second is more fit for modeling particle diffusion motion in fluids. [sociallocker][/sociallocker]
