In this post, I will show you how to use Mathematica to construct different three dimensional rotation groups, as well as how to generate different mathematical sculptures using the rotation groups.

There exists a glut of mathematical sculpture with very similar visual attributes. What’s up with that and how can you make your own? Have no fear, my newest video explains just that!

There are a lot of pages out on the web on career advice, productivity advice, and all of that. I have a ton of opinions, but there are more qualified people offering advice out there, like Nobel prize winners and world leading mathematicians. This page is dedicated to providing links to other peoples’ smart ideas on productivity.

Social media was abuzz a while ago with Canadian Prime Minister Justin Trudeau’s explanation of quantum computing. Check it out.

Mathandcode.com has been remastered! Instead of a bare-bones website, I’ve taken advantage of bootstrap/fontawesome and based styles off of more modern web design layouts.

Things to Click

VisualInsight :
John Baez's Visual Insight blog focuses
on visual aspects of mathematics, and presents material in a way that is both
great for broad audiences, and great for leading the mathematically inclined
further into the topic. The images are compiled from other mathematicians and
programmers.

acko.net : “Hackery, Math, and Design”. Steve Wittens
of acko.net wrote the best tutorial on Julia sets I’ve ever seen, and writes fantastic
presentations that are sure to inspire a new generation to
do away with PowerPoint.

georgehart.com : George W
Hart creates varied sculpture based on mathematical principles. His work
inspired my video, “I Heart Group Theory and So Can You”,
and I recommend that you check
out and build his slide together constructions!

markjstock.org : Mark J. Stock produces work based on computational
physics. He’s inspired to try new simulations and projects, and to change the
techniques I use in my own physics simulations. His youtube channel is full of
hypnotizing pieces and slow, sloshing, detailed fluid mechanics simulations.

segerman.org : Henry Segerman is a mathematics professor with a lot
of great work, including collaborations with youtuber and artist Vi Hart, and a book,
Visualizing Mathematics with 3D Printing

worrydream.com : Bret Victor, a designer who has worked for Apple,
tends to focus on interactivity and the visionary futures of user experience.
His article Ladder of Abstraction
perfectly captures some aspects
of thinking that are ubiquitous in mathematics and physics.
