vector,matrices drawing software. some thing like android(Visual Vector Math)


Hello,

Is there a software for linux who is simple and can draw vectors, matrix, transformations etc.
I am learning linear mathematics, I would really appreciate such visual help.

I have been using octave for get the calculations, but i will also need some thing to draw very basic vectors, also if I could do simple addition of vectors.

Androids app "visual vector math" look exactly the same but I don't want to buy
a new device just for that.

Also when I look for linux software, I run into very hight end image processing software.

I need some thing very simple, some thing line gnuplot.

Thanks for your time.

Hi:

I looked up Open Source Alternative for other applications that are out there that you could use.
Here are a few you could choose from:

This is a good website as well to choose from:

Hope you find what your looking for.

What do you know, Its gnuplot what I was looking for.

So far I used gnuplot via octave so I assumed it wont give enough choice to manipulate individual vectors.

Finally I discovered a manual for gnuplot and I was able to draw vectors in 2d and 3d.
Code:
 gnuplot> set arrow from 0,0 to 4,7
gnuplot> set arrow from 0,0 to 2,3
gnuplot> set xrange[0:9]
gnuplot> set yrange[0:9]
gnuplot> plot 0
gnuplot>

Sounds like your happy with what you have.

I do a lot of 2d and 3d also but I use Gimp. Other than that I paint alot on canvas.

Glad your pleased; enjoy gnuplot- And have a good weekend!
