"Mathematics, as much as music or any other art, is one of the means by which we rise to a complete self-consciousness. The significance of Mathematics resides precisely in the fact that it is an art; by informing us of the nature of our own minds it informs us of much that depends on our minds" - J.W.N.Sullivan (1886-1937), Aspects of Science, 1925.

Just some interesting surfaces. The software used is Python and MayaVi. I used the scripting facilities provided by this great visualization tool, called MayaVi.
