Description This image is a somewhat fair reconstruction of an image of the en:Calabi–Yau manifold that appears as a figure in the paper:
Leonard Susskind (November 2003). " Superstrings (Features: November 2003)". Physics World 16 (11). Retrieved on 2007-07-24.

I created this image myself to replace en:File:Calabi-Yau.jpeg (an illicit copy of the original). To recreate the image's likeness without copying the image, I used the description on the home page of Prof. Andrew Hanson of the computer science department at the University of Indiana, and the procedure he provides in the paper:

A.J. Hanson (November/December 1994). "A construction for computer visualization of certain complex curves". Notices of the Amer.Math.Soc. 41 (9): 1156-1163.

In particular, the image I created resembles this image on Prof. Hanson's home page, as well as the figure from the Physics World article.

An alternate version is here.
