# Etruscan Venus: Red

### (C)1989 Donna Cox, George Francis, Ray Idaszak, NCSA.

venus

This surface is a Whitney-stable 3D projection
of a nonorientable surface with Euler
characteristic 0 (a Kleinbottle) embedded in
4-space. Like Steiner's ``Roman Surface'',
the ``Etruscan Venus'' loses its singularities
under Fran\c cois Ap\' ery's ``Romboy'' homotopy
and becomes an immersed surface equivalent to
the connected sum of two copies of ``Boy's Surface.''

# Optiverse: ICM98 Berlin Poster

### (C)1998 George Francis, John Sullivan, Stuart Levy

optiverse

This image graced the main poster of the International
Congress of Mathematicians in Berlin, August 1999. It is
a detail of the four "isthmus events" that open/close the
ears of Morin's Surface during the eversion of a sphere.

# Weaire-Phelan Foam: Relaxed Voronoi Cells

### (C) 1999 John Sullivan, Stuart Levy

The Weaire-Phelan foam is a counterexample to Kelvin's
conjecture about the best partition of space into equal-volume cells.

# Optiverse: Minimax Sphere Eversion

### (C)1998 John Sullivan, George Francis, Stuart Levy

optiverse

The principal stages of this Morin eversion are arranged about
the border of this composite.
With the assistance of Camille Goudeseune, the image was raytraced
with Renderman on a Silicon Graphics Onyx 2 in the
Numerical Laboratory of the
National Center for Supercomputing Applications
and the
VisLab
of the
Beckman Institute
at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign.

This Irisprint was made from its electronic database by
Digicolor.
