Simple geometric beauty – a film by Bianca Violet and Stefan Klaus

Katzengold

“We visualize simple geometric beauty combined with mathematical content. Please enjoy.

Using a single formula – a polynomial – the film shows fascinating transformations from a cube to a rhombic dodecahedron, to an octahedron and to a dodecahedron.”

"The mathematician's patterns, like the painter's or the poet's, must be beautiful; the ideas, like the colours or the words, must fit together in a harmonious way. " G H Hardy, A Mathematician's Apology (London 1941).
