Interactive computer graphics have taken the place of plaster and cardboard models of curves and surfaces, because they allow a mathematician to examine the changes that a mathematical entity ungoes as parameters are varied or oher modifications are made. This paper gives several examples of applications of three-dimensional graphics as well computer generated illustrations of the phenomena in question.
