Abstract

Visualization aims at providing insight to its users. Now and then I am a user myself, and use visualization trying to solve a puzzle and to satisfy my curiosity. Simple questions turn out to be challenging problems, leading to a personal quest for their solution and resulting in intriguing images and animations. In my presentation I will present three such puzzles, all in the area of mathematical visualization.
