Mathematical illustrations
[edit]I've placed most of the following mathematical illustrations in the public domain. If you see an illustration I've drawn for one of my other web sites, and want it to be uploaded to the commons for whatever reason, please ask by email: if I upload it myself, it can be more properly licensed, and it's likely that I still have the vectorized source instead of the rasterized version I use for web images.
