The availability of high speed graphics engines has opened new frontiers in mathematical visualization. Many interesting algorithms with geometric output can be programmed in only a few hundred lines of code (or less) but designing and programming a custom user interface is a daunting task. To conduct effective research into visualization techniques, we need flexible software. This paper introduces Salem, a viewer for exploring mathematical structures and surfaces. The main topics are viewer features, system design, and applications.
