Mathematical Visualization

  1. Dec 11, 2011 #1
    What fields / disciplines of that field does mathematical visualization fall under.

    I know numerical computational geometry is one , where you wright algorithms to develop programs to visualize mathematics.

    Numerical computational geometry isn't really concerned with "visualizing" mathematics, it's concerned with finding numerical solutions to certain classes of problems in geometry. Mathematical visualization isn't a field, it's just something that you might sometimes "do".

    I agree, but there are certainly branches of mathematics that are inherently more visual. If you are a visual learner (like me), you will end up trying to visualize everything you meet in any part of mathematics, even if people say it shouldn't be attempted.
