Gallery of animated algebraic surfaces

Warning. This gallery is the very beginning of a project, with only a small fraction of what is planned. The moving pictures are animated gif files, with around 200K bytes each. The quality is not very high (20 pictures of 200x200 pixels for each sequence), in a compromise to keep them within reasonable file sizes.

Comments and suggestions are welcome. The development of this gallery is momentarily suspended.

Quadratic surfaces

Cubic surfaces

Quartic surfaces

Surfaces of higher degrees

These animated sequences are produced by WIMS, in an application which uses Povray as background engine.
