This is a GUI to simulate billiard systems on Matlab. It is useful not only for making graphics for files but also for doing research in billiard dynamical systems, as one can use this program to create lots of insight. It includes preset tables (such as Sinai, limacon, stadium, and mushroom billiards) as well as a tool to design one's own tables. The documentation for the program is available at http://people.maths.ox.ac.uk/porterm/research/billiards.pdf (with 2006 updates discussed in http://people.maths.ox.ac.uk/porterm/research/gui_update.pdf).
This is old software and is in need of updating for current versions of Matlab. I am hoping to eventually find someone who is interested in doing this. (My students who created this software graduated a long time ago.)
