# Computer Visualization in

Experimental Mathematics 2019

This project is about enabling mathematicians to communicate their
research to a wider audience. The human brain receives 90 percent of
its information visually, and devotes ten times as much of the cortex to
vision (30pc) than it does to hearing. With the advent of
computer graphics (CG), we have easy access to 2,3,4 and more dimensional
drawing and animation.
CG has become important even in math, and as an essential part of a new
discipline that
William Thurston
called
Experimental Mathematics.
We invite a member of any IGL project team to join us (even if only
occasionally) to learn how to illustrate their subject more vividly.
Emphasis is on programming real-time interactive computer animations
which are accessible over the Internet on any browser.

For now, you will find more information in the original
IGL Project Proposal 24jul19.
Although this is not a continuation of an earlier IGL project,
Stability of Quasicrystal
Frameworks, have a look at the page for an idea what previous IGL
students accomplished. For links to other possible items of interest, see
