FroZenLight is a Java-based tool that can interrelate line arts, mathematics and cryptography. FroZenLight is an instrument that can be used for math education.
Circular shaped mirrors that are arranged in a grid like manner reflect a light ray according to the reflection law of geometric optics. While random positions of the light source produce chaotic reflection patterns it is possible to position the light source so that symmetric reflection patterns are created.
The simple reflection model of this application is very chaotic: The uncertainty of the height of the initial ray height increases quickly with every further reflection calculation. Therefore arbitrary precision mathematics is needed to completely determine the reflection patterns.
