Mathematical Poetics: Boundaries and Flows →
isomorphismes: Gauß’ divergence theorem states that, unless matter is created or destroyed, the density within a region of space V can change only by flowing through its boundary ∂V. Therefore i.e., you can measure the changes in an entire region by simply measuring what passes in and out of…

intothecontinuum: In this iterated function system, a Möbius transformation is applied in succession to the white circle yielding the blue and yellow circles. Varying the characteristic constant of the transformation gives the different arrangements seen in each frame of the animation. More IFS here GIF source: Java app

fewpeoplematter: A spinning 3D model of the 6-dimensional Calabi-Yau manifold. This manifold has been shown by string theory to be the topological shape of extra, curled-up dimensions on the Planck-scale at every point in the universe. It is the extra dimensions of this shape that allow…
