Illustrating Mathematics
(September 4 - December 6, 2019)


The Illustrating Mathematics program brings together mathematicians, makers, and artists who share a common interest in illustrating mathematical ideas via computational tools.

The goals of the program are to:

  • introduce mathematicians to new computational illustration tools to guide and inform their research;
  • spark collaborations among and between mathematicians, makers and artists;
  • find ways to communicate research mathematics to as wide an audience as possible.

The program includes week-long workshops in Geometry and Topology, Algebra and Number Theory, and Dynamics and Probability, as well as master courses, seminars, and an art exhibition.

Mathematical topics include: moduli spaces of geometric structures, hyperbolic geometry, configuration spaces, sphere eversions, apollonian packings, kleinian groups, sandpiles and tropical geometry, analytic number theory, supercharacters, complex dynamics, billiards, random walks, and Schramm–Loewner evolution.

Illustration media include: animation, interactive visualization, virtual and augmented reality, games, 3D printing, laser cutting, CNC routing, and textile arts. In addition, we welcome mathematical journalists, writers, and videographers interested in communicating and illustrating mathematics.
