# SL E8 Polytope Math, Science, and Art Gallery

I found a home to host my thousand prim objects that are generated directly from my Mathematica E8Flyer notebook. This is a shot of the gallery with a few 2D and 3D projections from the tool.

# POVRay and SL

Cool News. I developed the process to output the E8Flyer to Second Life. Looks like the POVRay output is working better too (see pic)

BTW – I left a copy of one of my E8 3D projection obects in Wizard Gynoid’s 7K E8 @ Butler CollegeIThttp://slurl.com/secondlife/Butler%20College%20IT/198/75/1001

It is the smaller white one next to the very nice larger (and better) green projection that Wizzy Gynoid, Desdemona Enfield, and Garrett Lisi created.

I thought it would be fun to start posting pictures generated from the E8Flyer.  If you have used it and discovered any symmetries for yourself – please post them here.

I am working on generating even more beautiful pictures based on E8 using POVray.  We’ll see how that goes, I might even get POVray anaglyphs out of it!

I’ve been tweeking the code, fixing bugs, typos, etc.

• Previously, I had added in the upper right corner of the control pannel the ability to select the triality rotation matrices (+/-T, T12).
• There is a new description of the “construction patterns” which is corrected and simpler.
• I just added the ability to generate “All” edges (as opposed to having to select only one set of edges norm’d to some length).

This is a pic I uploaded to wikipedia a few weeks ago.

The pic below is a generated from my latest E8Flyer.nbp – it has all 28,680 edges (with the particles at the vertices scaled down in order to focus on the edges).
