Henry Segerman visits 3D printing class

Lectures & Discussions

Dr. Henry Segerman, mathematician and artist, from Oklahoma State University recently visited the department to share his work in dimensions and 3D printing as part of our Ronneberg Lecture Series in the sciences. Dr. Segerman presented to the Denison Seminar class – 3D printing: from the abstract to the concrete – taught by Professor Lew Ludwig (math/cs) and Chris Faur (fine arts). He showed the students how to make projections of 2D images onto the sphere which provides for interesting shadows as depicted in the picture below.

Dr. Segerman also gave a general audience presentation to a crowded house on How to make sculptures of four-dimensional things. In this presentation, Dr. Segerman showed how the power of 3D printing could be used to help visualize complex four-dimensional mathematical structures (see below). It was a mind-bending talk that was enjoyed by all!
