Description:


    This program uses free-form deformations to study the topology of mathematical surfaces. Several deformations are demonstrated, including the claim of topologists that a donut (torus) and a coffee cup are topologically equivalent. Virtual reality encourages users to see shapes from a new perspective – from the inside, looking out – and to explore and manipulate complex surfaces in order to better understand them.
