For their competition entry, the two researchers from the Mathematical Geometry Processing group at Freie Universität visualized a complex function using the technique of domain coloring. They assigned each complex number in their equation to a spot on a color wheel. The result packs two dimensions of information (hue and brightness) into each point in the image.
Scientists, graphic designers, and artists may submit entries to the visualization competition. The award-winning contributions are those that most successfully mediate between research and society at large. The various categories include schematic illustrations, photographs, videos, and interactive computer games. This year 212 entries were submitted in five categories.
