TorusI have been busy with POVRay and created these Torus Images "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #2 20050913 19:18:11
Re: TorusVery good work, very nice pictures. Last edited by ganesh (20050913 19:19:59) Character is who you are when no one is looking. #3 20050914 00:26:45
Re: Toruspovray is good but I prefer max or maya Last edited by kylekatarn (20050914 00:28:04) #4 20050928 08:18:15
Re: TorusGreat pics, but I think the torusintosphere is a bit too slick. That's not good mathematics, there's a topological discontinuity when you lose that central hole. Don't give people the idea that a sphere is a kind of torus, because it ain't :) #5 20050929 20:01:20
Re: TorusGood point phayes, I will look at changing that. "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #6 20050930 21:17:06
Re: TorusI have removed the "no hole" images from the torus page, but it looks kinda sad now "The physicists defer only to mathematicians, and the mathematicians defer only to God ..."  Leon M. Lederman #7 20051011 08:13:46
Re: TorusAfter reading around these various references, I think that there are two slightly different views of the essence of torushood.
