Math Photo: Change of Coordinates

Change of Coordinates

Shining through the rectangular grid of chain links, the sun creates a second, compressed coordinate system in shadow.  This reminds me of changing coordinate systems, as in linear algebra or a u-du substitution .

Often, a new coordinate system can provide a cleaner environment for solving a problem.  And as long as we understand the transformation that got us there, we can usually take our solution back with us when we return.
