I use Mathematica every day, and I am always creating pictures. And over the past eight years, I have created roughly 6,000 such pictures. This book gives a small selection of these pictures.From the Inside Flap:
Mathematica and the visual arts are often viewed as independent realms, the former purely technical and the latter solely the domain of artistic technique. Yet the words "technical" and "technique" both derive from the same Greek root: techne, meaning "art, craft, skill."
In this volume, mathematician and artist Michael Trott uses the technical computing system Mathematica to create dazzling, intricate images of objects no human has ever seen. Some of the images are playful geometric explorations; others are directly inspired by the work of such artists as Escher and Vassarely; still others make use of sophisticated mathematical methods borrowed from sciences such as electrodynamics and solid state physics. All represent a new intersection of two worlds usually separate: mathematics and the visual arts.
