Friday math movie: Inspirations - animation of Escher art

By Murray Bourne, 16 Mar 2012

This is a nice animation of Escher's many ideas. There's plenty of other math concepts thrown in for good measure. See how many you can spot.

The story behind the opening chessboard scene can be found here: Math Fairy Story.

HTML: You can use simple tags like <b>, <a href="...">, etc.

To enter math, you can can either:

  1. Use simple calculator-like input in the following format (surround your math in backticks, or qq on tablet or phone):
    `a^2 = sqrt(b^2 + c^2)`
    (See more on ASCIIMath syntax); or
  2. Use simple LaTeX in the following format. Surround your math with \( and \).
    \( \int g dx = \sqrt{\frac{a}{b}} \)
    (This is standard simple LaTeX.)

NOTE: You can mix both types of math entry in your comment.
