## Speed Curve pendant

At first sight, our speed curve pendant might seem to consist of some arbitrary wire. But this is not true at all. Almost every detail is defined by mathematical formulas.

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.

This object looks like a piece of art. But in fact, it is "just" a mathematical curve, called 7/3 torus knot. Imagine a donut, and then tie a cord around it in some interesting way.

Our modern version of Klein's historical cubic surface model with four singularities is the main figure in our photo from the series "math sculptures in context". It is the pure white version with its 9 straight lines.

Our modern version of Clebsch's historical - nowadays quite famous - diagonal surface model is the main figure in our photo from the series "math sculptures in context". It is the pure white version with the 27 straight lines.
