M336 - Progress

#math #maths #OpenUniversity #M336 #Escher

Today I had "the click" on 2-dimensional lattices ( M336 - GE3 ). Let me show you some output of my M336 Mathematica notes.

The top-left part of the image is a building block from which, for example, a frieze or a lattice is constructed. The image, or the plane, of the building block is deformed by two vectors such that a new shape is created. The lower part of the image is a 4-by-5 lattice of a deformed copy of the image above.

Before I started M336 I rather looked up to studying the 17 Wallpaper Groups. Mainly because I thought they were no fun, boring. And now that I am close to studying them in GE4, I can't wait. I hope to be able to computer-generate some of Escher's art with the program I made. But more about that another time, but soon.

Welcome to The Bridge

Mathematics: is it the fabric of MEST?
This is my voyage
My continuous mission
To uncover hidden structures
To create new theorems and proofs
To boldly go where no man has gone before

(Raumpatrouille – Die phantastischen Abenteuer des Raumschiffes Orion, colloquially aka Raumpatrouille Orion was the first German science fiction television series. Its seven episodes were broadcast by ARD beginning September 17, 1966. The series has since acquired cult status in Germany. Broadcast six years before Star Trek first aired in West Germany (in 1972), it became a huge success.)
