A blog about satisfying my own curiosity.

Mostly about math, physics and computer science.
But also kanjis and modular origami.

Misc : Supermag Magazines

During its golden age, Plastwood published a Supermag Magnetic Genius magazine. Here are the scans of the issues I could get my hands on in French and Italian.

Geometry : Geomag Models and Search Bar

I have added a new feature to the viewer, namely a way to search for a specific polyhedron according to its number of vertices, faces and other filters. There is also new Geomag and Supermag models as well as the corresponding render style.

Geometry : Golden Rhombic and Edge Augmented Polyhedra

The golden ratio is a mathematic wonder that when applied to polyhedra outputs a new category surprising by its properties. It led to edge augmented polyhedra and some improvements of the viewers.

Rendering : Light Intensity Profile

Imagine you have a light emitting object into your hands, what is its intensity profile ?

Rendering : Rutherford-Bohr atom model

An attempt at representing atoms according to the not so accurate Rutherford-Bohr model since I could not find an interactive viewer online.

Rendering : Atomic orbitals

I have combined most of my knowledge about physics, programming and rendering to replicate a great visualisation of atomic orbitals.

Geometry : Parquet Polygon Explorer

In a previous post, I have presented parquet polygons. I have transposed the generation code into JavaScript and made an interactive viewer out of it.

Geometry : Finding new regular faced polyhedra using Stella

I like playing with magnets but it is limited to simple models with a few hundreds of elements at most. Here I show my results of using Stella software to produce more complex model using repetitive actions.

Geometry : Making my own polyhedra using Supermag magnets

During my childhood, my parents bought me Legos, K'nex, Megabloks and Meccano sets. Apart from the Lego, the only ones I have kept are my three boxes of Supermag Magnetic Genius.

Geometry : Discovery of Lobel Frames

During my quest towards polyhedron with regular faces, I have discovered the work of a lifetime by Alain Lobel, a French architect. This is will be the first of many post on the subject.
