The Wallpaper Vibrates

Now that we know how to construct wallpaper functions by superimposing wallpaper waves [Back], it is a simple matter to make a succession of these images showing how the waves evolve into the future.

In the the sections that follow, we have done just that. Each movie is available in several formats; the movie icon ([Movie]) links to a page where the various versions can be selected, and where instructions are available for setting up your browser to display them properly.

Our first movie is an example of a vibrating wallpaper that is invariant under the group pmg [Link]. The gallery that follows has five additional movies based on other symmetry groups [Skip].
