Not knot( Visual )

3 editions published between 1991 and 2011 in English and held by 116 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This video is a guided tour into computer animated hyperbolic space. It proceeds from the world of knots to its complementary space, what's not a knot. It shows the geometry of the knot complement, the space around the knot and then the viewer sees what it is like to "fly through' the hyperbolic space. The supplement contains the video script and provides further explanation
Outside in( Visual )

7 editions published between 1994 and 2009 in English and held by 104 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the problem of turning a sphere inside out without creating sharp bends or creases, illustrating an application of turning points
Making waves : a guide to the ideas behind Outside in by Silvio Levy( Book )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 37 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Discusses the problem of turning a sphere inside out without creating sharp bends or creases, illustrating an application of turning points
The shape of space( Visual )

2 editions published between 1998 and 2014 in English and held by 21 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

With the use of computer graphics and non-technical language, author Jeffrey Weeks explains the idea of topology, an area of mathematics important for theorizing about the shape of the universe. A glimpse of non-Euclidean geometry is provided by showing how a two-dimensional space a "fundamental domain", may be considered to be the surface of a torus, with properties different from those of a different plane. The analogy is extended by showing a cube as a fundamental domain. Also included is an interview with Jeffrey Weeks
Gallery of interactive geometry( )

in English and held by 7 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

"These are programs that you can run over the Web using the fill-out forms capabilities of your browser. They allow you to investigate some interesting areas of current mathematics by providing you with the means to manipulate the mathematical objects directly. Most include descriptions of the underlying theory, as well as interactive graphics. These include QuasiTiler, Cyberview, Kali, and Orbifold Pinball."
Supplement to Not knot by David Epstein( Book )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 4 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Geometric and computational perspectives on infinite groups : proceedings of a joint DIMACS/Geometry Center workshop, January 3-14 and March 17-20, 1994 by American Mathematical Society( Book )

1 edition published in 1996 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The optiverse( Visual )

1 edition published in 1998 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Computer-animated videos showing a new way to turn a sphere inside out and complicated unknot untangling
Advances in Nonlinear Astrodynamics Conference : November 8-10, 1993 by Advances in Nonlinear Astrodynamics Conference( Book )

1 edition published in 1994 in English and held by 2 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Viro's patchworking disproves Ragsdale's conjecture( Visual )

1 edition published in 1997 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This animated video explains new developments concerning Hilbert's sixteenth problem, still unsolved, dealing with ways nonsingular level sets of polynomials can be arranged in the projected plane. Mathematician Virginia Ragsdale had conjectured an upper bound on the number of topological circles resulting from algebraic curves of degree 2k. After almost 90 years, Oleg Viro has proposed a new combinatorial method for constructing curves, known as patchworking, which has shown counter-examples to the Ragsdale Conjecture
The geometry center by University of Minnesota( )

in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

Web Feet summary: The Geometry Center specializes in the use of technology to visualize and communicate concepts from mathematics and related sciences. Click on Interactive Web and Java Applications to interact with "math you can manipulate," which includes such activities as building a rainbow and playing orbifold pinball. Clear explanations of the concepts accompany each activity
The geometry and topology of the Costa surface( Visual )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide

This computer-generated video explains how the Costa surface is topologically a torus

Illustration of hyperbolic space from video Not Knot
Center for computation and visualization of geometric structures. Final report, 1992-1995( )

1 edition published in 1995 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This report describes the overall goals and the accomplishments of the Geometry Center of the University of Minnesota, whose mission is to develop, support, and promote computational tools for visualizing geometric structures, for facilitating communication among mathematical and computer scientists and between these scientists and the public at large, and for stimulating research in geometry
1992 annual report to the National Science Foundation( )

1 edition published in 1992 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Geometry Center research program has a number of different aspects. This report documents the work of the past year. The activities described here are organized under intertwined areas: manifold geometry and associated group theory; optimal geometries; dynamical systems; and computational geometry and computer graphics
1991 annual report to the National Science Foundation( )

1 edition published in 1991 in English and held by 0 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Geometry Center research program has a number of different aspects, most of which involve longer term commitments, such as, development of research software, teams of individuals visually exploring mathematical structures and sponsoring of workshops. The Center is built on the research programs of its faculty. These programs have flourished and interacted under the Center umbrella. There are many interconnections and commonalities between the fields represented. Here, a summary of the research work of each of the faculty members. Some of the research topics are geometric calculus of variations, group theory, geometric algorithms, and computer graphics
