I sent this to the list but I didn’t get any confirmation or error email or see it in the usual gimp-developer emails so I guess I’ll try again

I'm working on this idea for physics but it seems like it could be pretty good for image manipulation. I only know simple python so I don't think I could manage a plug-in for Gimp but I can explain the formulas and how I did the simple example I show in python if someone wants to try to add it...

Yes - i did see your message but have been busy.

You could write a Python plug-in (script) for GIMP. There is also the cage transform tool, which has a UI and can get somewhat similar effects. The hard part is often designing the user interface. How would a graphic artist - quite possibly one who ran screaming from "math" in middle school and never looked back - create a warp effect using your plugin?
