# The Model

**Figure 3.1 Mathematica Model**

The animation in Fig. 3.1 above is an illustration of a mathematical model that was produced by *Hans Milton* in Mathematica. The model captures two smooth functions that are interdependent in normal, orthogonal, Euclidean 3-space. The illustration shows an animation of the visual components of this relationship.

Also in the animation are two sets of changing numbers; one set at the top of the image adjacent to the slider, and another set in the small rectangle directly above the model. These two sets of numbers are ordered pairs of a function that expresses the model.
