Description

A well known party trick, which has on occasions been used to motivate the use of spinors in physics, is shown to have a counterpart in certain one-parameter families of diffeomorphisms of R3. One such family is constructed and then visualized as an animated sequence of deformations applied to parametric surfaces in R3.
