A recent article on the Apple Web site highlighted the work of Michael Trott, a pioneer in the effort to popularize the creative/artistic side of pure mathematics and the world’s most advanced Mathematica user.

A Google search for “mathematical art” will lead to innumerable other sites and resources through which to explore this under-appreciated aspect of mathematics, the language of science.
