Three Ring Circus by Jacques Friedman

Freidman's exploration of the dynamics of a system of three interconnected rings resulted in the visualization of a three-torus. Following a suggestion of Bill Thurston, he ray traced an object in this three-torus by allowing light rays to follow geodesics specified by the configuration space metric. This project is described in detail in the Summer Institute 1992 reports.
