Pretty Purple Polyhedron Mathematica Home

If you’ve never heard of Wolfram Research’s Mathematica, click here for a brief explanation, or use the What is Mathematica link in the navigation sidebar on the left side of this page.’s Mathematica site is produced by Luci Ellis and Ted Ersek, and maintained by Luci Ellis. Please contact Luci by email at if there is anything we can do to make the site more useful to you.

If you are wondering about the logo, it’s a Mathematica polyhedron. The code to generate it is:
Show[Stellate[ OpenTruncate[ Geodesate[Graphics3D[PolyhedronData["Icosahedron"]], 2], 0.1], 0.8], Boxed -> False, Lighting -> {{"Point", RGBColor[.8, 0, .5], {1, 0, 1}}, {"Point", RGBColor[0.1, 0.5, 0.2], {1, 1, 1}}, {"Point", RGBColor[0, 0, 0.7], {0, 0.8, 1}}}]
