Math Photo: Tasty Triangulation

Published by patrick honner on

This arrangement of chocolates makes me think of triangulation, the process of approximating a curved surface by a collection of flat triangles.  Approximating curved things with flat things is a classic move in mathematics, and is one of the fundamental ideas in Calculus.  So, maybe this photograph should be titled “Calculus in a Chocolate Shop”?
