# Math Art

Below is a collection of pretty math images that I’ve created.

# Poisson cities

I was trying to simulate the Poisson
process but screwed it
up. The picture *should* look like a jagged, ascending staircase, but I forgot
to sum the results up, giving what looks like the skyline of a blocky city. I
thought this was cooler than whatever I was trying to do, so I played with my
mistake instead.

Someday I would like to make an endless animation of this.

# Stochastic predator-prey

This plot shows the difference between the “classical” Lotka–Volterra equations and a stochastic version of them which adds some randomness. In the classical version, predator and prey populations enter a stable equilibrium (the oval-looking thing) and never leave it. The stochastic version lets you jump around more, and looks much more interesting.

# Random redistricting

This is a randomly drawn congressional map of Georgia using GerryChain, a tool I helped create at the 2018 Voting Rights Data Institute. I don’t think it solves gerrymandering, but it sure is pretty.
