VISUALIZING MATHEMATICS WITH 3D PRINTING. Henry Segerman. Johns Hopkins University Press, Baltimore, 2016. 208 pp. with 150 ills. (132 col.). 25 x 17 cm. ISBN 9781421420356 In English.
Publisher's description: Wouldn't it be great to experience three-dimensional ideas in three dimensions? In this book -- the first of its kind -- mathematician and mathematical artist Henry Segerman takes readers on a fascinating tour of two-, three-, and four-dimensional mathematics, exploring Euclidean and non-Euclidean geometries, symmetry, knots, tilings, and soap films. Visualizing Mathematics with 3D Printing includes more than 100 color photographs of 3D printed models. Readers can take the book's insights to a new level by visiting its sister website, 3dprintmath.com, which features virtual three-dimensional versions of the models for readers to explore. These models can also be ordered online or downloaded to print on a 3D printer. Combining the strengths of book and website, this volume pulls higher geometry and topology out of the realm of the abstract and puts it into the hands of anyone fascinated by mathematical relationships of shape. With the book in one hand and a 3D printed model in the other, readers can find deeper meaning while holding a hyperbolic honeycomb, touching the twists of a torus knot, or caressing the curves of a Klein quartic.
