The purpose of this thesis is to explore Steiner''s Porism by the software "Cabri Geometry". There are two discussions referring to inversion and Steiner''s Porism. Definition, properties and applications of inversion are introduced in the first part and constructing Steiner Chain by inversion to explore Steiner''s Porism is the second one. The contents of this thesis are also presented dynamically on the website by CabriJava which is a Java program developed by the Cabrilog company.
