I am struggling with the book: “Creating Symmetry – The Artful Mathematics of Wallpaper Patterns” by Frank A Farris, which I presented in my last post. As a very pedestrian mathematician and programmer I have difficulties with his abstract methods, based on complex numbers and group theory. However, the results are too beautiful and I want to create similar images.
I hope that I will be able to post some results here in this blog. I will not give you a summary of Farris book. To get everything you will need to buy it for yourself.
