Mathware on the Digital Palette
Ralph Abraham, Math Dept, UCSCComputational math -- cybernetics, neural networks, system dynamics, complexity, chaos, fractals, and agent based models -- for the digital media artist.

(Erwin Panofsky, Perspective as Symbolic Form, 1997.)We propose that agent based models are the Postmodern equivalent of perspective in the Renaissance, and abstract animation in the Modern age.
