Mathematical Impressions: Long Sword Dancing How do long sword dances produce stable patterns of interwoven segments? What are the possible variations? Explore the mathematics of this traditional art form.
Mathematical Impressions: Spontaneous Stratification Why does a mixture of sand and colored sugar spontaneously separate when poured?
Mathematical Impressions: Curved and Straight? The elliptic hyperboloid is a beautiful quadratic surface that is “doubly ruled,” meaning that the surface, although curved, contains two straight lines through each point.
Mathematical Impressions: Geometry of Spaghetti Code A sculpture project built entirely with right angles combines math and art in subtle and surprising ways.
