# SURFER Competition Israel

event

Welcome to the SURFER competition for Israel!

In collaboration with the Mathematisches Forschungsinstitut Oberwolfach we collect images of algebraic surfaces generated with the SURFER program. Have a look at some of the past creative surfaces from a previous competition below!

#### How does the competition work?

Algebraic surfaces are produced by simple equations in three spatial coordinates x,y,z.

All points which satisfy these equations are drawn. For example, the equation x^2 + y^2 + z^2 - 1 = 0 results in a sphere.

The competition requires creativity, intuition and mathematical skill in order to create equations yourself or to change given equations to produce beautiful images. The images are easily generated with the SURFER programme. You will find the programme and a guidance manual on the SURFER-Installation-Site.

A link to upload your image can be found on the following competition site.

Or go directly to uploading and viewing images.

#### Who can take part?

Everybody is invited to take part!

You can submit an entry that is just your own work, or you may like to submit a group entry from your class or family.

All entries are welcome!

*December 24th 2015 to October 24th 2016.*

#### Tips and links:

Images that have been created from other competitions can be seen at the Galleries.

Expert tips can be found under: Tips to create algebraic surfaces by Prof. Greuel (pdf)
