Author:The Geometry Center
Description: For mathematicians and educators: a visual dictionary of surfaces and other mathematical objects, consisting primarily of movies, still images and interactive pictures. Can be used to complement classroom presentations, research papers and talks. Each object is accompanied by a short description that provides background information and interconnections among the objects in the zoo. Where appropriate, the equations that describe the objects are included. Primarily a reference, not an introduction to topology or other branches of mathematics. An ongoing project at the Geometry Center, the work of graduate students from the the University of Minnesota and undergraduates who participate in the Summer Institute at the Geometry Center.
