Synergetics can be described as dynamic geometry. Its treatment of polyhedra as vector diagrams and emphasis on the changes and transformations in systems distinguishes Fuller’s work from the traditional geometric approach. His conviction that mathematics ought to supply dynamic models—in recognition of dynamic Universe—led to a number of interesting discoveries. “Jitterbug” is the most striking example.
