Calabi-Yau manifold: animated quintic hypersurface

Click to zoom in.

The animated GIF shows a real two-dimensional visualization of a three-dimensional section of the quintic hypersurface in CP^4, the most popular smooth Calabi-Yau manifold among most string theorists.

Go to Jeff Bryant's page for more words about it and a Mathematica notebook.
