Then do 20 eversions (winging) and 20 inversions (sickling) on both sides.
The trouble with these eversions, however, was that they consisted of a series of stages that didn't lead automatically from one to the next.
Additional computer experiments revealed that the case in which four surface sections meeting at one point is just the simplest member of an infinite family of eversions, each one characterized by a different number of intersecting surface sections at the crucial halfway mark of the eversion.
The optimal sphere eversion, or optiverse, is now the star of a vivid, computer-generated video, titled The Optiverse, produced by Sullivan and his Illinois colleagues George K.
This strategy allowed him to introduce corrugations--wavy bends--to make these shapes extremely pliable, gaining insights into how immersions maintain their smoothness during transformations such as eversions.
