Over the last ten years I have made a number of computer graphics images of mathematical objects connected with my research in optimal geometry. Please click on any section below to see larger images and a brief mathematical explanation.

Some of these images come from my 1998 videos Knot Energies and The Optiverse.



As of 1999, three of my images are available as fine-art prints.


Soap films

Double bubbles

Foams

Regular Polytopes as Bubbles
