<== This is a picture from the interactive geometry
package Cinderella showing the behavior of 10,000 starting
values in the rectangle [0,1]x[h1,h+1], where h is the height of the
horizontal line, after six iterations of the algorithm which reflects
a point x in the sphere then reflects the outcome in the line and then
averages the result y with x. It is an accessible prototype for a
remarkable image reconstruction algorithm known variously as
DouglasRatchford, LionMercier, Fienup's method, and
"divideandconcur." Some related graphics can be generated and

Quote of the day (refresh browser to select another):
I see some parallels between the shifts of fashion in mathematics and in music. In music, the popular new styles of jazz and rock became fashionable a little earlier than the new mathematical styles of chaos and complexity theory. Jazz and rock were long despised by classical musicians, but have emerged as artforms more accessible than classical music to a wide section of the public. Jazz and rock are no longer to be despised as passing fads. Neither are chaos and complexity theory. But still, classical music and classical mathematics are not dead. Mozart lives, and so does Euler. When the wheel of fashion turns once more, quantum mechanics and hard analysis will once again be in style.  Freeman Dyson's review of Nature's Numbers by Ian Stewart, Basic Books, 1995, from American Mathematical Monthly, AugSept 1996, pg. 612.
