About

This Video is part of the POV-Ray Short Code Contest #5 which was originally published by Paul Bourke in 2008. This page shows a new re-rendering of the original POV-Ray source code at a higher resolution, although here and there some miniscule syntactic changes had to be made to the code in order to get POV-Ray 3.7 to parse it.

Author's Comment

Mathematically the main idea is: we start with functions l (or lattice): R^4 -> R and t (or transformation): R^4 -> R^4. Then we visualize a level set of l o t.
