Simulations for March 2006 Workshop

This list of applets has been produced primarily for the Workshop on Simulations on 29 March 2006, but it may have a wider use.  The first sections have some links to useful information, and then I give a number of publicly available animations and simulations that I think you might like to see.  These are only a small subset of all the good stuff that is out there.  Those that I plan to use in my talk I have highlighted.
