Intercall: Fire Animation

Terry Robb
Organization: RMIT University
Department: Department of Mathematics

The notebook contains a 60 frame animation of a fire. A fire texture, based on standard noise generating techniques, is written as a Mathematica function and then passed through the InterCall pseudo-code compiler to speed the function up by a factor of about 100. This notebook therefore not only shows a cute animation, but also illustrates a method for improving code performance.
