This webpage collects some Flash-ActionScript demos that I have developed to introduce people to algebraic topology. You have to install the Macromedia Flash Player Logo swf to be able to play this animations. It can be downloaded here. I have heard about a problem with FireFox and Macromedia Flash. If your are enabled to play a swf file, download it and play it directly with the Macromedia Flash Player.

You can use it wherever you want. If you do, please, send me an . I would like to know where It is used.
