Math art in code
Last updated: 21 June 2019.
This is a collection of computer-generated art that has mathematics at its core.
An evolute of a curve is the path traced out by the centers of the radius of curvature of the curve. Animations of this concept produce pleasing geometric shapes. See:
Create your own solid of revolution using this interactive 3-D graph. Drag across the canvas and the shape automatically appears.
Here's an animation made from pure CSS whose wave motion makes it look a bit like a jelly fish.
Delaunay Triangulation is a specific kind of triangulation (the important mathematical concept used in everything from engineering to computer graphics).
See some math, art and coding at:
Perlin Noise was an important development in computer game and animations, as it made surfaces a lot more realistic. The process is based on vectors, interpolation and differential calculus. This animation reminds us of smoke moving in the wind. See:
This is an animation of the Moore Curve, an example of a space filling curve which consists of continuous (one-dimensional) fractal lines that bend around in ever more intricate ways such that they eventually fill a (2-dimensional) square.
Bubble sorting is a simple sort technique that all coders learn about. Here are two visualizations of the bubble sort process, one involving numbers, and the other colors.
