Math animations.

This is one subject I know only a few people will be interested in.

"The American Mathematical Society (AMS) announced that a collaboration between a French mathematician and a Belgian artist has resulted in math animations that herald new era in visualization".

The AMS is even more enthusiast and says that these graphic animations "point to a new era for the use of computer graphics in communicating and carrying out mathematical research."
Let's start with a short excerpt of this AMS news release.

The two collaborators are Etienne Ghys, a mathematician at the Ecole Normale Superieure in Lyon, France, and Jos Leys, a Belgian graphic artist and engineer with strong mathematical interests. They have written an online animated exposition of an important new theorem Ghys has proved in dynamical systems theory.
