Available

  • Extend the TINKER-Simulater (Molecule optimizer) with a network server functionality
    • A server program (c++ or c#) should be created using functions from TINKER (written in Fortran)
    • Using c++/c and FORTRAN together
    • Introduction into FORTRAN
    • GFortran compiler
    • To generate a dll from the fortran source: gfortran -o test.dll -shared -mrtd -mno-cygwin -Os -fdefault-integer-8 test_f.f
    • or to generate the object file: gfortran -c -Os -fdefault-integer-8 test_f.f
    • and link it with the c++ object file to a executable: gcc -o test test_c.o test_f.o -lgfortran
    • use the dll in c#: [DllImport("test.dll")] public static extern void test_();
  • Implement shaders for "Augmented Chemical Reactions" to support reflection, light, shadows and transparency.
  • Implement a fingertracker to control 3D objects.
  • Implement a connection to the NOVINT Falcon haptic device to control 3D objects and get feedback.
  • Integration of a 3D cam to control the Position of 3D objects.
  • Robust marker recognition
