Elliptic Curve Torus.

Elliptic curves, which have deep connections to number theory, can be described mathematically either as polynomials or as tori. This piece is a torus model of an elliptic curve with special points, called rational points, highlighted in contrasting colors



Cuboctahedron-Projective Plane Transformer.

Gould created this interactive model to illustrate the relationship between the cuboctahedron (a cube whose corners have been cut off) and the projective plane (an abstract mathematical surface). The model can be folded, zipped and unzipped to reveal different conformations
