Guided Tours of Buried Galleries (Inside a Computer)

  • Jean-François Colonna
Part of the Mathematics and Visualization book series (MATHVISUAL)


The title of this text can seem quite mysterious, but it reveals the double reading it is possible to make of the pictures we will describe. As a matter of fact, most of them are computed in order to be used as scientific or pedagogic tools; but that does not exclude to carry them out under aesthetic constraints while being attentive with proportions, with colors,... even from time to time by forgetting Science. The word gallery must thus be understood with to quite different meanings which will be defined hereafter.
