From: “Rotational energy surfaces and high-j-eigenvalue structure of polyatomic molecules”, by W. G. Harter and C.W. Patterson, Journal of chemical physics, vol 80, 4241-4261 (1984)

There is a nice project at Cornell called visualizing meaning, which is a down-to-earth approach to the vast field of information visualization.

For the project all 1,943 Cornell Faculty were asked to respond to the following question:

(The above image had been submitted by a Mr. Greg Ezra.)

We were very pleased to see a slide of our colleague Richard Palais together with Luc Bernard among the competition winners (see above image, First place for illustration). It shows wellknown mathematical surfaces in glassy style.
