Posted: Mon Sep 01, 2014 11:42 pm Post subject: Barth Sextic (deg 6) 


Hi all,
The Barthsextic is a sextic surface in complex threedimensional projective space having the maximum possible number of ordinary double points, namely 65. The surface was discovered by W. Barth in 1994, and is given by the implicit equation
4(phi^2x^2y^2)(phi^2y^2z^2)(phi^2z^2x^2)(1+2phi)(x^2+y^2+z^2w^2)^2w^2=0.
where phi is the golden ratio.
Barth's sextic surface has 65 double points: Of these, 20 nodes are at the vertices of a regular dodecahedron of side length 2/phi and circumradius sqrt(3) ,30 are at the vertices of a concentric icosidodecahedron and circumradius 1 and 15 of the nodes are at infinity.

Hi Abderrahman
Thank you for publishing those basics about algebraic surfaces!
What strikes me is that the formula parameter presentation is not clearly arranged. More clearly would be to format it like this...
Quote:  {
"Iso3D":
{
"Cnd": [ "(x^2+y^2+z^2)>9" ],
"Component": [ "Barthsextic" ],
"Const": [ " w=1.0", " phi=(1/2)*(1+sqrt(5))" ],
"Fxyz": [ "4*(phi^2*x^2y^2)*(phi^2*y^2z^2)*(phi^2*z^2x^2)(1+2*phi)*(x^2+y^2+z^2w^2)^2*w^2" ],
"Name": [ "Barthsextic" ],
"Xmax": [ "3" ],
"Xmin": [ "3" ],
"Ymax": [ "3" ],
"Ymin": [ "3" ],
"Zmax": [ "3" ],
"Zmin": [ "3" ]
}
} 
Do you think that this is possible?
Range values would also be more readable if they are coded like K3dSurf...
"x": [3, 3]
"y": [3, 3]
"z": [3, 3]
Whatever, you know that is only a consideration.

Hi Gerd,
You're right but, as far as I know, it's not possible to achieve that with the actual JSON Support in Qt. Hope this feature will be supported soon.
Code:  Range values would also be more readable if they are coded like K3dSurf...
"x": [3, 3]
"y": [3, 3]
"z": [3, 3] 
MathMod's scripts targets mathematical models with high number of components, and unfortunately, this rearrangement will not help when playing with high number of components...I'm more and more using MathMod to read and modify my scripts and I'll add new ways to make the editing easier. _________________ Cheers,

Posted: Sat Sep 20, 2014 4:26 am Post subject: Boy surface 


Hi all,
Boy's surface, found by Werner Boy in 1901, is an immersion of the real projective plane in 3dimensional space.
Boy's surface is discussed (and illustrated) in JeanPierre Petit's Le Topologicon.
Boy's surface was first parametrized explicitly by Bernard Morin in 1978.
Boy's surface has 3fold symmetry. This means that it has an axis of discrete rotational symmetry: any 120° turn about this axis will leave the surface looking exactly the same. The Boy's surface can be cut into three mutually congruent pieces.
The Boy surface is a model of the projective plane without singularities and is a sextic surface.

Hi all
More infos about Boy's surface(s) you'll get at ...
http://www.math.smith.edu/~patela/boysurface/AmyJenny/other_boys.html
E.g. this is another representation of Boy's surface as an algebraic surface ...
Code:  Name: rs_Boy1
/* Isosurface: rs_Boy1 10/2013 RealSurf

F(): 64*(1z)^3*z^3
 48*(1z)^2*z^2*(3*x^2 +3*y^2 +2*z^2)
+ 12*(1z)*z*( 27*(x^2 +y^2)^2
24*z^2*(x^2 +y^2)

)

[y]: 1.4 , 1.2

ps. Abderrahman, shouldn't this be a seperate posting for a 'BOY surface'?

Sorry I completely forget to respond...
It's there only because it's also a sextic surface but you can open a new thread if you wish : Boy's surface actually is worth more than one thread
