Oof. Another one destroyed by over-aggressive video compression. See the source code link for a better version: community.wolfram.com/groups/-

Our paper on the least symmetric triangle has been published by Geometriae Dedicata: rdcu.be/GIkL

Here’s another fun image from the paper, which comes up in the course of determining the least symmetric acute triangle: mathstodon.xyz/media/3p4i0S_rV

Fall Out

Mapping a rotating circle on the sphere to the plane. Here's the map: first, send (almost every) point on the sphere to the point on the \(z=1\) plane contained in the same line through the origin. Then, invert the plane in the unit circle.

Allegory

A bunch of Brownian bridges approximating the unit circle.

Flat

Stereographic projection (followed by orthogonal projection to the plane) of a flat torus in the 3-sphere.

Send/Receive

Stereographic projection of the latitude/longitude grid on the sphere.

Grid

Take the square grid, inverse stereographic project to the sphere, then orthogonally project to the unit disk. Now, before mapping, translate the whole grid by \(-t(1,2)\) as \(t\) varies from \(-1\) to \(1\). This is the result.
