# Free Modular Lattice on 3 Generators

This is the free modular lattice on 3 generators, as drawn by Jesse McKeown. First discovered by Dedekind in 1900, this structure turns out to have an interesting connection to 8-dimensional Euclidean space.

# Golay Code

The extended binary Golay code, or Golay code for short, is a way to encode 12 bits of data in a 24-bit word in such a way that any 3-bit error can be corrected, and any 7-bit error can at least be detected. The easiest way to understand this code uses the geometry of the dodecahedron, as shown in this image by Gerard Westendorp.

# Newton’s Apsidal Precession Theorem

A little-known result in Newton’s Principia Mathematica is that by adding an inverse cube force to the usual force of gravity, you could change the angular motion of a planet while leaving its radial motion unchanged. This can have strange effects, shown in the animation here.

# Balaban 11-Cage

This picture shows part of a graph called the Balaban 11-cage. A (3,11)-graph is a simple graph where every vertex has 3 neighbors and the shortest cycle has length 11. A (3,11)-cage is a (3,11)-graph with the least possible number of vertices. The Balaban 11-cage is the unique (3,11)-cage.
