Today, February 7th 2018, is called e-day, because e is approximately 2.718, and this date is written 2/7/18 in some parts of the world.

Happy Valentine's Day!
There are no formulas for love…
… but there is a formula that produces an algebraic surface shaped like a heart.
Visit our special Valentine’s Day website: https://love. imaginary.org/
You can modify the heart or tweak its parameters to match your feelings.
HINT: If you change the final 3 into a 2 you can get the heart into some lovely underpants.
If it does not reflect your passions or you’re feeling adventurous you can change the equation completely.
To continue exploring mathematical equations that create other wild, powerful, inspiring, provocative, sweet, curious, confusing, sometimes scary but always amazing three dimensional surfaces you can download our SURFER software. The raytracer you find at the Valentine’s Day special page is by Aaron Montag. It was created using CindyJS by Jürgen Richter-Gebert.
Did you know that February 14 is also “I love Free Software Day”?
