Richard Noss - Richard, I enjoyed speaking with you earlier today, thanks for your interest in our Second Life Pharmatopia build. You also mentioned visualisation of algorithms in 3d, not sure if you meant for SL or not. Reminded me of some interesting examples I have come across, still looking for some of the links, but here are others I unearthed: mathematical algorithms to 3d Shapeways has pages of 3d objects based on algorithms, submitted by designers to allow public to print the objects in various materials. Beautiful. uses 3 methods to create 3d objects, involving subdivision/radiolaria, particle systems and diffusion limited aggregation. Lets you play at distorting hexagonal grids via applets, looks like fun. Kind Regards, Colleen McCants, University of Nottingham
