I’ve been test driving the excellent mathbox WebGL library. For starters, here’s a pan-and-zoomable Whitney’s umbrella:

I have been thinking about how to organize the contents of this blog more visually as well. Thus I have created a preliminary version of “a mathematical zoo”.

My main inspirations for beautiful mathematical illustrations have been Geometry and the Imagination and A Topological Picturebook. As I become more comfortable with mathbox, and (painfully) shake the rust off of my d3 skills (while learning d3 v4), I hope more of the images from those books make their way to this blog.
