We are searching for a software program that simply helps us to visualize in 3D the interference of planar waves of multiple sources (frequencies) and as sepctrum on a wall. Something like a well known visualisation of the famous double split, but instead of the splits just havnig the possibility to have multiple sources with different frequencies.

I would be thankful for any hint/reference.

Many thanks

For something like this I used Mathematica 9.0 and Comsol Multiphysics. Take a look around here demonstrations.wolfram.com maybe you'll find something useful. –  nijankowski Jun 15 '13 at 20:23
We have Mathematica 9.0. But we could not identify anywhere a ready made pack/project for this. The aim of our question was to avoid own programming of a project for a common and basic physical visualisation. –  al-Hwarizmi Jun 15 '13 at 20:33
Check these out demonstrations.wolfram.com/… and demonstrations.wolfram.com/… –  nijankowski Jun 15 '13 at 20:48
