About the Cover

It is possible to maintain threefold symmetry for the projections of the graph of the complex squaring function into a family of planes, starting at the unit disc (at the lower left) and ending at the conjugate of its square. Lifting those mappings into three-space gives a very symmetric sequence of projections of the Riemann surface of the squaring function. This image sequence was produced at the Geometry Center by Thomas Banchoff from Brown University and Davide Cervone from Union College.
