In this paper we propose FVRML-a function-based extension of Virtual Reality Modeling Language which allows for timedependent shape modeling on the web. Shape's geometry, 3D texture, color and transformations changing through time can be defined with analytical functions typed straight in VRML code. FVRML allows us to greatly extend the abilities of VRML with a very intuitive approach to shape modeling based on using analytical functions. Several functions can be combined into one using java
