In Vanuatu (East Pacific), it exists a cultural tradition of tracing figures in the sand. In many aspects, mathematical procedures and iteration are involved in the creation of these figures. That is the main point of my research.


Project (1)
My aim is to describe the cultural tradition of Sand-drawing under its mathematical aspects. I am trying to extend works of Marcia Ascher, by modeling these drawing, and computing them.
