Some delights are embodied in objects such as a slice of baked New York cheese cake or a glass of Cape Sauvignon Blanc from Thelema, Tokara, Springfield, etc. Other delights (although still of course embodied) are more abstract. Abstract delights are most pleasingly evident when you do or think about being a stoic, consilience, evolutionary biology, socio-biology, provability logic, set theory, proof theory, model theory - (which can be thought of as universal algebra plus logic or algebraic geometry minus fields), topology, earth systems sciences or music.
I am also interested in Knowledge Management when it is interpreted as "radical innovation" or "knowledge improvement"; (i.e. the continuous improvement of best practices or best processes); history, good wine, plants, dogs & deserts
These pages are about such delights...
The bunny, for example, although she looks so solid to us is really quite delightfully abstract. She is a conformal structure bunny invented by professors X. Gu and S.T. Yau; an image from an algorithmic method for tackling fundamental problems in computer aided geometry design, computer graphics or computer vision.
The image is used on these pages by kind permission of professors X. Gu and S.T. Yau. The conformal structure bunny appeared in X. Gu and S.T. Yau, "Computing Conformal Structures of Surfaces", Communications in Information and Systems, Vol.2, No. 2, pp. 121-146, December 2002. International Press & professors Gu and Yau, are the copyright holders.
