Mike Naylor: Math Bugs. In: Bridges 2015. Pages 137–142



Math Bugs are cool little creatures that are made from sets of curves that represent factorial multiplication within modulo bases. The bugs have interesting properties and connections, and surprising number patterns. By representing modulo multiplication visually, the geometric patterns which result can be used for artwork which can draw attention to aspects of matemathematics which may otherwise be hidden.
