Author:Hanson, Kaplan, Heng; Center for Innovative Computer Applications (CICA)
Description: Images, movies, videos, publications, presentations. An animation presents a popularized introduction to Fermat's Last Theorem. Three-dimensional mathematical depictions are used in the beginning of the film to illustrate the meaning of the mathematical ideas involved. The second half of the film makes a transition to show a remarkable family of four-dimensional surfaces related to Fermat's theorem, and projects them to three dimensions for display using standard rendering and shading techniques.
