Particle Tracking Client and Source Code

Particle Tracking C/Java Source Code

Our particle tracking program is implemented in a client-server fashion. Find here a Java GUI of the client (written by Remo Marti as part of his semester thesis), a text-mode client/server (written by Ingo Oppermann as part of his semester thesis), the source code of the program, and documentation on how to use them.


Attention: Users of MacOS X 10.5 or later (Java version 1.5.0 or later) will find that the GUI client in the package above will not work. Please use this new GUI client instead. It provides exactly the same functionality. The core and the text mode client from above package work without changes.


The algorithm implemented in this program is described in:
