Geometry Project Leads To Student-Faculty Publication

In survey of Geometry, students Ryan Tsao and Matthew Medal took on a project of implementing a new method for creating mathematical art. Drawing on ideas in Professor Frank Farris's new book, Creating Symmetry: The Artful Mathematics of Wallpaper Patterns, Tsao and Medal used WebGL to turn photographs into spherical paintings with polyhedral symmetry. The image shows a sphere painting with tetrahedral and mirror symmetry, based on a photograph of a San Jose sunset. A paper by Farris and Tsao, called "Polyhedral Painting with Group Averaging," has been accepted by PRIMUS, a peer-reviewed academic journal covering the teaching of undergraduate mathematics, for a special issue on mathematics and the arts.
