Images for the 2001 AMS edition of
"Plateau's Problem" by Frederick J. Almgren, Jr.
These pictures show soap-film geometry computed in
Surface Evolver, using input files prepared by Brakke to
mimic the hand-drawn illustrations in the original editiion
of Almgren's book. They are rendered using Sullivan's custom
soap-film shader for Pixar's Renderman.
