waves calculations

recently started to get interested in wave equations. Pantha Rei! Everything flows! Imagine yourself as a pure collection of wave functions - the sum of all wave functions of each of your atoms, electrons, neutrinos and quarks combined.
No matter anymore, just pure waves. :) Strange imagination for me. I can not quite grasp it yet but it definetely makes sense from the physics that i know.

Some nice results were obtained by visualizing wave interference patters via volumetric rendering.

Ten random point sources for some sound wave collide:

the same wave but looking at it from a different angle with different colors:

download the GNU GPL'ed source code (ANSI C) for calculating the NxNxN cube. And use some software for CT such as Joe Kniss's Simian for visualizing.
