Frink is a practical calculating tool and programming language designed to make physical calculations simple, to help ensure that answers come out right, and to make a tool that's really useful in the real world. It tracks units of measure (feet, meters, kilograms, watts, etc.) through all calculations, allowing you to mix units of measure transparently, and helps you easily verify that your answers make sense. It also contains a large data file of physical quantities, freeing you from having to look them up, and freeing you to make effortless calculations without getting bogged down in the mechanics.

Perhaps you'll get the best idea of what Frink can do if you skip down to the Sample Calculations further on this document. Come back up to the top when you're done.

Frink was named after one of my personal heroes, and great scientists of our time, the brilliant Professor John Frink. Professor Frink noted, decades ago:

"I predict that within 100 years, computers will be twice as powerful, ten thousand times larger, and so expensive that only the five richest kings of Europe will own them."

Math, Physics, and Engineering Applets
These are some educational applets I wrote to help visualize various concepts in math, physics, and engineering. They were originally written in Java, but they've mostly been converted to Javascript, so you should be able to view them without a Java-capable browser.

Entropic Inference and the Foundations of Physics
"Our goal is twofold. First, to develop the main tools for inference — probability and entropy — and to demonstrate their use. And second, to demonstrate their importance for physics. More specifically our goal is to clarify the conceptual foundations of physics by deriving the fundamental laws of statistical mechanics and of quantum mechanics as examples of inductive inference. Perhaps all physics can be derived in this way."
