If (cos(6k/2000)-i cos(12k/2000))e^(3i/4) means nothing to you, then you’re probably like the rest of us. Normal.
The last time “cos” resonated with you, was during high school math– when it meant “cosine,” a trigonometric function…of some sort.
But to 25-year-old Iranian student Hamid Naderi Yeganeh, using cosines are a part of daily life — what you would expect of a mathematics major and award-winning mathlete.
Explorations have led to new animations
Yeganeh’s work with circles and line segments is expanding to include animations. Beyond that, he’s beginning to think in 3-D, creating sculptures made of fractals.
“The power of mathematics is unlimited. There’s an infinite number of great artworks that we can create,” he says.
