MOVIES


Hi all,

I would like to know if it is possible to make a "movie" of the 
propagation of a wave obeying a differential equation through time.

For example:  Given an initial condtion f[x] = x^2  on some interval,
I would like to show how the wave propagates under the wave equation,

       U_tt = c^2 * U_xx

Currently, I can make plots of the solution u(x,t) at varying times
to show how the wave behaves, but it would be nice to make a movie
of it.

Is this possible?   Thanks!

Pete
