We are excited to announce the launch of Golden Bee Puzzles™.
These puzzles explore deep mathematical ideas while being fun for people of all ages.
The puzzles consist of a number of tiles in the shape of a Golden Bee. All the tiles are the same shape, but they come in two sizes.
The challenge is to fit them together to make a larger bee shape.
13 tile Golden Bee Puzzle
These wood-crafted, laser-etched puzzles are available for $50 each.
We will be adding more information concerning the mathematics behind these puzzles. But please leave a comment if you have any questions or would like to order a puzzle.
An ANU mathematician has developed a new way to uncover simple patterns that might underlie apparently complex systems, such as clouds, cracks in materials or the movement of the stockmarket.
The method, named fractal Fourier analysis, is based on new branch of mathematics called fractal geometry. Continue reading Fractal Fourier Analysis
This website promotes recent research concerning the mathematics of natural imagery, art, and biology. The goal is to combine ideas from chaotic dynamics, iterated function systems and image science to provide a new geometry of form and colour. Topics include colour stealing, fractal transformations, orbital pictures, the chaos game, superfractals, laminations, textures, area-preserving maps and more. Have fun!
