Projects

Projects are open for collaboration and need support. The community is invited to think along, to work along, to help in design, programming or general implementation. Projects can be a new exhibition, new software, new ways of communicating maths, a publication, etc. If you have a project idea to be listed here, please send an email to info@imaginary.org. We will guide you through the submission process.

A bundle of opensource software for “playing music” on algebraic surfaces (AS).
It is a generative music method based on trayectories traced over AS.
The goal of the project is the interactive exploration of different musical and aural posibilities of the AS.

The project “IMAGINARY Turkey” is part of the German-Turkish Year of Science and is supported by the German Federal Ministry of Science and Education (BMBF). Its idea is to strengthen scientific ties between the two countries through jointly organizing mathematics exhibition and through networking in the field of mathematics communication.

Open

This is a networking project for professionals of Math Communication. The objective is to support the community of math communicators, and to stimulate the exchange of experiences and ideas between members of this network.

We are looking for new exhibits for the Mathematics of Planet Earth (MPE) exhibition hosted at IMAGINARY. The exhibition launched on March 5, 2013 at the UNESCO in Paris and presented modules from a competition. The exhibition is still open for new exhibits!

jsurf is the core of the SURFER program and many other projects for visualizing real algebraic surfaces. It is able to produce images of a single algebraic surface quite quickly and robust. This projects aims for extending the capabilities of jsurf towards rendering of multiple implicit surfaces with transparencies.

We want to write a book based on the program SURFER. It is based on so called SURFER experiments which are short and creative tutorials on how to create a variety of surfaces. It shall be an open source book written by the community. The SURFER book will be available for free download in pdf format. There will be a printed version to be bought (for low cost).

The idea of Mathcraft is to create paper sculptures of algebraic surfaces, which can be rebuilt at home. The way from the equation to the surface to the 2d mesh and the surface-sculpture is described and a series of standard and non-standard surface meshes are built to share with the community.

SURFER is a program for visualizing real algebraic surfaces. The user interface is primarily designed for exhibitions. It does not offer advanced options for more professional users. In addition, its implementation is based on the JavaFX 1.3 framework which has been abandoned by Oracle in 2010. In order to continue development on this wonderful program, the user interface needs to be rewritten using a different user interface (UI) toolkit.
