Minimal Surface Graphics Project
This is the main page for an ongoing minimal surface project. The goal of this project is the creation of a well-documented library of minimal surfaces in form of Mathematica notebooks which generate 3-dimensional models in a reproducible way. Such a library will be extremely useful for research purposes, and it will also have educational benefits.
The functionality of the Mathematica packages supporting the library will include the following:
While the first two steps are different for each new surface, the other steps can be automatized. Below is a link to a directory with Mathematica notebooks and packages which attempt this. The packages are currently under development. I will try to keep the sample files working with new releases of the main package. The current version is 0.13 (6/15/01).Mesh generation with Mathematica
The Archive contains sample images created with the current version of the package.
