The main motivation behind this site is as a teaching aid in the field of algorithms and data-structures. A series of applets, including algorithm pseudocode, are provided to illustrate the workings of important algorithms in Computer Science.
- Some browsers such as Internet
Explorer and Safari
support Java Applets and can be used to view AAW animations. Some other
browsers such as Chrome and Firefox have stopped supporting Java
Applets and are (for the time being) not suitable for AAW.
We are currently working on resolving this issue.
- If these java animation applets are blocked by Oracle for
security reasons, add the AAW URL to the Java exception list on your
system. The exception site list is managed in the Security tab of the
Java Control Panel. To add a URL to the list: Click on the Edit Site
List button. Click the Add in the Exception Site List window. Click in
the empty field under Location field to enter the URL and add https://www.eecs.yorku.ca/~aaw/
(don't forget to add the final "/"). Click OK to save.
Click Continue on the Security Warning dialog. For details,
This page was initially developed during the winter of 2001 as part
a project course for the
Department of Computer Science at
York University by
Sotirios Stergiopoulos and
Hang Thi Anh Pham under the supervision of
Andranik Mirzaian. Later on, other students have contributed
animations to this page.
We strongly encourage interested students to
more applets to our page ( some topics are listed here ).
For any contributions, comments, or questions,
please contact Andranik Mirzaian.
