## A gyroid, round cut

The gyroid is a modern classic. It is a so-called minimal surface. Our object is an approximation of it in terms of sine and cosine.

This visualizes a 1-parameter family of cubic functions or a 3d graph of a function in one variable in a 3d-coordinate system.

It was back in the 1872 Göttingen, Germany, at a meeting of the scientific society. Alfred Clebsch and Felix Klein each presented a model of a cubic surface. Our modern versions of these historical - nowadays quite famous - sculptures are the main figures in our photo.

The Barth Sextic is probably the most famous example of the sometimes so-called world record surfaces. This post shows a smoothed variant of it.

In the 19th century Sylvester described a surface for studying the number of real roots of a polynomial. Henrici later constructed a model of this. This is a modern version.

This version of Clebsch's famous diagonal surface model features colored lines. One intersects the surfaces in a line and a hyperbola, the another one in three lines.

A Togliatti quintic surface is a so-called world record surface. Among all quintic surfaces, it has the maximum possible number of singularities, namely 31. Our model is a smoothed version of such a surface.

The shape of our "four pillows meet pendant" is given by a single mathematical equation. Have you ever seen a pendant like this before?
