Cover Image

This image represents a surface colored by its Gaussian curvature: the surface is red where the curvature is most positive and purple where it is most negative; the black line represents the points with zero curvature that divide the two regions. The mesh amove the image is the Gauss map of the surface, similarly colored.

More information can be found in the article Cusps of Gauss Maps.
