Antony Gormley's Quantum Cloud was commissioned for a site next to the Millennium Dome in London. At 30 m high, it is Gormley's tallest sculpture to date. It is constructed from a collection of tetrahedral units made from 1.5m long sections of steel. The steel section were arranged using a computer model using a random walk algorithm starting from points on the surface of an enlarged figure based on Gormley's body that forms a residual outline at the centre of the sculpture.

Statistics Pro: Ace your Stats Class
Are you doing math with an abacus? No? Well, why are you using Z-score tables? Enter the mean and standard deviation of a bell curve, and this application computes the area under the curve to the left of any value you specify. Or, compute the value on a bell curve given the area beneath it. "Statistics Pro" contains a rich collection of solvers, examples, and tutorials.
