Here's an atypical conformal model of the hyperbolic plane. The Poincaré disk is mapped to the entire plane via the Joukowsky transformation (https://www.johndcook.com/blog/2016/01/31/joukowsky-transformation/), compressing the boundary-at-infinity to the interval [-1,1] on the real axis.

Has this model appeared in the literature? If so, what is it named?

This artwork by Robert Bosch draws a picture of Königsberg and its seven bridges as an Eulerian graph on the points of a grid. It's only one of many many impressive and interesting pieces of mathematical art in the Bridges 2018 gallery, http://gallery.bridgesmathart.org/exhibitions/2018-bridges-conference

This Youtube clip has only 39 views. It was filmed in the 60's, and it stars Coxeter on reflections. Worth watching.

I was written about in Scientific American! This is from page 71 of the August 2018 issue. I've been reading this magazine for nearly my entire life so I'm extremely honored and excited to see one of my creations show up there.

Visualizing hyperbolic honeycombs talk

+Henry Segerman gave this talk a few days ago at the Bridges 2018 conference. I think he did a great job sharing the concepts in our JMA paper!

Uniform tilings of the hyperbolic plane
by Basudeb Datta and Subhojoy Gupta

Abstract. A uniform tiling of the hyperbolic plane is a tessellation by regular geodesic polygons with the property that each vertex has the same vertex-type, which is a cyclic tuple of integers that determine the number of sides of the polygons surrounding the vertex. We determine combinatorial criteria for the existence, and uniqueness, of a uniform tiling with a given vertex type, and pose some open questions.

I found this fun blogpost a great way to become more familiar with the Johnson solids. Well worth a read!

A blogpost about the geometrical adventures I've been having after stealing my children's toys.
