The Surface Evolver graphics interpreter

The Surface Evolver is an interactive program for the study of surfaces shaped by surface tension and other energies, and subject to various constraints. A surface is implemented as a simplicial complex, that is, a union of triangles. The user defines an initial surface in a datafile. The Evolver evolves the surface toward minimal energy by a gradient descent method.
