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.

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

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.

The Mathematics Translations in Europe (MaTiE) project is a collaborative project of popular mathematics communicators within Europe, with the aim to disseminate print and online media on popular mathematics within Europe, with a particular focus on availability of translations in as many European languages possible. The project is initiated by the Raising Public Awareness Committee of the European Mathematical Society (EMS) and coordinated by its members in collaboration with IMAGINARY.

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

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.

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.
