Mathematical Beauty

i believe mathematics is really beautiful, you only need to be shown that beauty if you can't see it for yourself. few gifted ones have the talent and inspiration to expose this beauty for all to see.

Douglas Arnold and Jonathan created a fascinating 3D animation that "depicts the beauty of Möbius transformations and shows how moving to a higher dimension reveals their essential unity. It was one of the winners in the 2007 Science and Visualization Challenge and was featured along with the other winning entries in the September 28, 2007 issue of journal Science. The video, which was first released on YouTube in June 2007, has been watched there by more than a million viewers and classified as a "Top Favorite of All Time" in the Film & Animation category." copied from the project home page.

you can watch the movie here on YouTube.
