[roseman at dimension4.math.uiowa.edu: Geomview]
FYI --Mark Date: Sun, 12 Dec 93 09:30:32 -0600 From: Dennis Roseman <roseman at dimension4.math.uiowa.edu> To: register at geom Subject: Geomview I don't have time at the moment to give an extensive report about my use of geomview. (I've got to wrap up the semester and I have a lot of research going as well.) I do have a lot to say on the subject. Basically, using geomview one can graphically demonstrate interesting and useful information about knotted surfaces in four-dimensional space. Just a few days ago I gave a talk (the joint AMS SMM meeting in Merida, Mexico) on the topic "The mathematical utility of visualizing surfaces in four dimensions". I could well have titled it "The mathematical utility of geomview in visualizing surfaces in four dimensions" geomview is a central tool in what I do and I use it (at least) several times each day. I have made two videos entirely using geomview. The latest one, done this summer is 19 minutes long, uses geomview in many different ways (real time interactively, using scripts, using animations, rendering stills and using as single frames, etc) using many of the modules (4dview, warp, animator). I am doing calculations involving (knotted) surfaces in four-dimensional space. I usually use it on NextStep. But I also use it on an SGI machine that I have access to (or the machines at the Center when I'm there.) (I am also planning on using geomview next semester for a calculus class I will be teaching.)
