ANU Applied Mathematics Professor Stephen Hyde studies the intrinsic hyperbolic geometry of minimal surfaces with applications to unusual crystal structures of real materials.

VIZLAB's Stuart Ramsden and Applied Mathematics Professor Stephen Hyde interact with a 3D lattice in Virtual Reality.

Many of these 3D lattices are difficult to understand through conventional 2D images, and building them as solid models would be too cumbersome. However 3D stereo Virtual Reality is an ideal tool for manipulating and understanding these structures. Notes and examples on the research into these 3D lattices can be found here: Mesoscale
