More Beautiful Maths

The other day my extremely significant other and I were talking about the beauty of maths or otherwise. He doubted that mathematicians were able to see the beauty of their subject. I'm quite convinced they do. Not least because I happened on this amazing site: the evolution of a Lorenz system - done in crochet (via the nearnear future). You'll find some lovely animations of similar equations and the crochet instructions plus a picture of the lovely object if you click on the 'Intelligencer'.

And while I'm at it... For all those who thought the Fibonacci Series was hardly more than a teaser: Here is some more stuff on them - complete with further links and a 30 minute bbc programme.
